Home > Explore > Wimborne Minster

Positioned at the confluence of two rivers, Wimborne is a place of gentle tranquility yet it supports a vibrant selection of independent businesses and a thriving arts scene. At the heart of the town is sited Wimborne Minster, a Saxon church with its celebrated chained library and astronomical clock. This is surrounded by a beautiful selection of historic town houses, pubs, alleyways and squares that encourage a slower less hectic pace of life.

The town supports a host of well-frequented independent shops that sell all manner of unique items including books, children's toys, cookware, fine furniture, plus of course many fine eateries to enjoy in-between. A leisurely lunch at the Tickled Pig is one such way to enjoy a visit to this jewel in the crown of rural Dorset.
