Walking in Dorset

There’s lots of choice for walkers in Dorset with coastal rambles, formal garden strolls and countryside walks with far-reaching views. Take the bracing climb up Hambledon Hill to look out over Dorset, Somerset and Wiltshire, or walk back through time as you explore the Iron Age hillfort at Badbury Rings on the Kingston Lacy estate.
