Getting to Dorset
Dorset may be one of the most rural counties in England but it still offers plenty of alternatives when it comes to travelling:
- Bournemouth International Airport offers cheap flights to a large selection of destinations.
- Condor Ferries and Brittany Ferries operate services from Weymouth and Poole to the Channel Islands and the French ports of Cherbourg and St Malo.
- Regular train services run from London, Birmingham, Bristol and other parts of the country into Dorset.
- A network of main roads connect the major towns in Dorset, despite the county's lack of motorways.
