“beautiful site built in 2010 on the site of the former cricket pitch but retaining much landscaped grounds and planting - its a delight to visit or sit outside and now cross its new bridge over River Allen into the town”

General Entertainment
“The model town has been around for decades now and is internationally famous. They run all sorts of special events through the year and if the model town is not enough for you the adjacent gardens are beautifully kept and well stocked. There is a cafe here for snacks and drinks along with a gift shop. Well worth a visit if you have not been before. While there are extensive car parks in Wimborne all of them charge. These charges do vary and you will need to check them at your time of arrival. ”
