Things to do in Bridport

Bridport’s history and heritage is wide and varied, dating back to Alfred the Great giving it a Royal Charter in the 9th century. By the late 13th century, Henry III confirmed it as a Royal Borough and Bridport began to become known for its rope-making trade, exporting its ropes and cables around the known world. The rope industry remains one of the town’s biggest industries, alongside tourism, with local firms producing nets for fishing and sports.

-Bridport’s history: can be glimpsed in the more than 1,000 buildings in town listed as having historical or architectural merit. The oldest building in town is the Chantry, which dates back to the time when Bridport first received its Royal Charter. Other significant buildings include the Bridport Literary and Scientific Institute, which has links to the artist Fra Newberry; and Bridport Town Hall, which was built in the late 18th century.

-Farmers Markets: The high quality and wide variety of local food produced around Bridport has made it a Beacon Town and twice-weekly markets and monthly farmers’ markets held in the town centre make it a magnet for foodies. The markets are also ideal for shoppers looking for bargains in antiques, clothing, flowers and plants, all of which can be easily transported back to your Bridport holiday accommodation.

-West Bay: A mile from Bridport is the pretty town of West Bay, which was once known as Bridport Harbour and is still a busy fishing port – visitors in Bridport holiday cottages can go mackerel fishing on day trips from the harbour and locally caught seafood is on sale in the shops and served up in bars and restaurants. West Bay is also known for its excellent diving offshore.

-Fossil Hunting: Bridport is a Gateway Town to the Jurassic Coast, the extraordinary sandstone sea cliffs that are some 180 million years old. There are organised fossil hunting tours to be enjoyed along this stretch of beautiful coast. The cliffs of West Bay offer a fabulous panoramic view of the coast and out to sea, with the South West Coastal Path running along the cliff tops.

-Chesil Beach: Most holiday homes in Bridport stand close to the western end of this familiar English landmark and is a must visit, especially if it is within walking distance of your accommodation.

Local towns worth a visit were withing easy reach from Honiton. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The property is highly recommended if you want to get away from the "hussle and bussle" of daily life...
