The Best Places to Stay in the UK

Shop

One of the nice things about Dorset is its almost entirely non-urban nature, with the result that chainstores and shopping centres are relatively thin on the ground. Instead attractive fishing towns such as Lyme Regis have no shortage of galleries and gift shops to peruse, while the lively Bridport market is a great place to rummage. Inland, there are farm shops selling their own meat, vegetables and homemade jams and pickles, while the harbourfront at West Bay is the spot to pick up fresh fish. Bear in mind also that some of the world’s oldest artefacts can be picked up at the many fossil shops in Lyme Regis, where hoards of gems, fossils, crystals and amber appeal to children and serious collectors alike. For serious, more mainstream shopping, Bournemouth has more than enough to satisfy most people, as well as unique places like the Poole pottery factory shop on the quayside.
