Dorset is a county located in south west England sitting on the coast of the English Channel. It covers an area of about 1,024 square miles, and borders Hampshire, Somerset and Devon. Chalk downs, limestone ridges and low-lying clay valleys make up the landscape of Dorset. These capture beauty anyone can appreciate, which has been noted as half of the county is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural beauty and another large section of the coastline is a World Heritage Site.

Much of this tourism is personal, individuals and families taking holidays but there is also a great deal of business related tourism. Much of this tourism is within Portland, Poole and Weymouth.
