When we’re not quite sure Ware to go next, we look for location. Beaches are good, as are forests, and possibly a nature reserve, and a castle, hills to stalk around, history galore and a steam railway? River kayaking ditto, and dinosaurs are welcome anywhere… we’re off camping in Wareham.

Wareham’s location on the River Frome, near the coast and the Purbeck Hills made it a nifty location for ancient mauraders and Civil War sieges before Poole took over as the area’s main town. The Swanage Railway still puffs along from here to, er, Swanage; Corfe Castle is nearby, and the town walls built in the eleventh century by King Alfred (cake burner) can still be seen. Tis most of our holiday boxes ticked then…

Also from a Wareham campsite, Wareham Forest is to the town’s north-west, the Studland & Godlingstone Heath Nature Reserve to the south-east, and the award-winning beaches of Poole within ten miles. Have a wander along the Purbeck Way from Wareham to Swanage for views of the coast too – and as for the dinosaurs? Wareham is on the Jurassic Coast and its museum has all the info you need to go off hunting some fossils.
