About Dorchester

The county town of Dorset since 1305, Dorchester is an attractive market town just inland from the south coast, and near to Poole and Weymouth. Home to around 17,000 people, Dorchester is popular with visitors to the area and contains many historical buildings and Roman remains.

Visitors often choose to take the Durnovaria Town Walk. This route follows the footprint of the old Roman walls and takes in some of the most attractive and historical parts of Dorchester, including The Borough Gardens and Salisbury Fields.

Other attractions in and around Dorchester include the Maiden Castle - the largest hilltop fort in England - and the Roman Town House, discovered during excavations in the 1930s.

Dorchester's long history contains many items of note - not least having been the base of the Tolpuddle Martyrs - founders of the trade union movement - and the departure point for Puritans emigrating to America.

Today, Dorchester is a popular historic market town well located for the south coast and occasional access to London. Van hire is readily available, with at least one major hire company maintaining an office in the town:

  • Medium vans - e.g. Ford Transit Custom, Vauxhall Vivaro, Renault Trafic, Volkswagen Transporter
  • Small vans - e.g. Vauxhall Combo, Ford Transit Connect, VW Caddy
  • Large / long wheelbase vans - e.g. Mercedes Sprinter XLWB, Ford Transit LWB, Renault Master
  • Luton vans & box vans (3.5 tonne / 3.5t).
