Nowadays, castles are an important piece of our history and they tell us about the past of a country and the life behind those ramparts. Time and erosion have deleted some traces of most castles but can still see the ruins of most of them. Visit the Iron Age fort on Wear Hill or the ruined Sherborne Old Castle. Coney’s Castle, Chideock Castle and the National Trust Lambert’s Castle are also part of the history of Bridport.4. Go for a wine tasting

In the rolling hills of Dorset, the old barn of the farm is now a tasting room to sample a bit of their fantastic wine produced in Bridport. Take a tour of the vineyard, try the wines and decide which one you are going to buy!5. Row, row, row your canoe gently up the stream

West Bay Canoes will plan an itinerary for you and the paddle instructor will guide you all the way. After the effort, the best way to recover is having a delicious ice cream when you return to West Bay.
