Things to do - Places to go, at and around Wareham Forest Tourist Park. There is just so much to do and see in this area that we find a lot of our customers need to come back because they haven't had enough time to do everything. And because everyone is different we have tried to categorise some of the things you can do and places to visit in the area.
Places to eat:
The Silent Woman is approximately 1/2 mile down the road (sadly not child friendly!) Wareham however is only a few minutes drive away with many restaurants and pubs, and further afield in Dorchester, Blandford, Poole & Bournemouth are many more restaurants, pubs and take-aways plus cinemas, shops and attractions.
There are many local markets around rural Dorset, please ask at the office or check local press for details.
There is everything from a 5 minute to 5 hour walks/cycle trails from the park itself. Bike hire is also available locally. www.skillsandtrials.co.uk for mountain bike courses and instruction in and around Wareham forest.
The nearest sandy beaches are at Swanage & Studland and also Sandbanks (Poole), 25 - 30 minutes away. Nearer still is the famous Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door.
