Surrounded by rivers and set on water meadows, Wimborne Minster occupies a lovely position. The Minster itself is breathtaking; built between the 12th and 14th centuries, it has an imposing central tower that dominates the town’s skyline. You could spend a fortnight exploring the town and still not see everything of note, but don’t miss the Priest’s House Museum and Garden, the market and the Tivoli Theatre.
Returning to the ‘50s
Don’t miss the model town, a representation of Wimborne as it was in the 1950’s - superb. Also includes a terrific model railway layout. The site is run by dedicated volunteers who obviously take a great pride in their town.
