Shaftsbury, Dorset

Shaftsbury is a beautiful place with plenty of tradition and history that any visitor will easily be taken too. The town it’s self one of the highest in England, not to mention one the oldest too. Due to the fact that it not only holds watch over much of the Blackmore Vale (part of the river Stour basin,) but proves popular for tourists as well. This is due to its breathtaking sites, landmarks and historical background, which make it an ideal place to take a short break or even relax.

Shaftsbury is on the border of Wiltshire and can be located 20 miles west of Salisbury on the A30 road and at the very bottom of the country. The small market town only has a population of around 6500 people and dates back to the times of the Saxon hilltop forts especially made famous by King Alfred. It has a good economy too with many dependant shops, pubs cafes and restaurants serving its residents and tourists.

It town has a few attractions on offer and stunning sights that will knock any one off their feet! If you like views than why not take a walk up the cobble streets of Gold Hill! This is one of the highest points in the town and offers a 360 view with scenic countryside views! It was also made famous by the Hovis adverts back in the 70’s when I boy tried to push his bike up the hill.

Shaftsbury’s Benedictine Abbey is another great place to visit which offers much history and stories about the life of Shaftsbury. The Abbey ( http://shaftesburyabbey.org.uk/ ) offers visitors beautiful ruins to walk through with herb gardens that will catch your attention. There is even a virtual tour of the abbey and you can even see the casket which is thought to hold the remains of Edward. At one point this held the largest women’s religious community in the whole of England.

There are plenty of events that happen throughout the year in the Blackmore Vale. Including the Yeovilton Air Show ( http://www.royalnavy.mod.uk/Yeovilton-Airday ) and the Larmer Tree Festival as well as the Shaftsbury Carnival and Christmas spectacular so there is plenty to keep the family entertained.

Shaftsbury itself doesn’t really have much of a party nightlife scene, how ever there are plenty of traditional pubs that serve the towns people. Check out The Mitre as a starting point with its warm atmosphere and great service, Wells and Young Ales and decent food this makes a great pub for the whole family to enjoy.

The Half Moon Pub ( http://halfmoonshaftesbury.co.uk/ ) is another great historic pub to visit. Its home to Badger Beers brewed by Hall and woodhouse, one of the only remaining family brewers in the region. The pub serves great food and has comfortable surroundings with a lovely kept beer garden and even live music events all year round. This is a great place to spend lunch dinner or even go for drink in the evening!
