A few of the literary giants include Thomas Hardy, Jane Austen and Enid Blyton with acclaimed artists such as Fra Newbury, Paul Nash, Turner and Charles Rennie Mackintosh all drawing inspiration from Dorset. More recently, West Bay was the backdrop to the award winning TV drama Broadchurch, written by Dorset resident Chris Chibnall. Dorset truly had a summer to remember in 2012 with Weymouth and Portland hosting the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic sailing events. The legacy has led to improvements in transport, jobs, roads, infrastructure, arts, sports, sailing and tourism. With Dorset’s mild climate and fertile soil, the county is home to some of the finest local produce and coupled with fresh seafood, Dorset has a winning combination for fabulous food and drink. Our local produce draws in celebrity chefs such as Gordon Ramsay, Lesley Waters and Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall.
