Things to do in Wareham

Wareham is an exciting place to visit, with Thomas Hardy and Lawrence of Arabia once both living practically on the town’s doorstep. A vibrant history with evidence of roots going as far back as the Mesolithic Age, Wareham is the place to be.

-The Rex Cinema is the one cinema in all of England where you can enjoy a movie and a glass of wine at the same time. Built in the late 1800s, and known as the Oddfellows Hall, it showcased concerts, banquets and theatre performances. It has been beautifully restored and improved since the actual cinema opened in 1920 – and is well worth a visit.

-The Blue Pool and Tea House is a magnificent natural pool, that literally glows in changing shades of blue and turquoise due to the various clay and mineral deposits in the water. Surrounded by 25 acres of woodlands on the Purbeck Hills, there are many walking paths to pick from. There is a museum, a teddy bear collection and a lovely historic tea room.

-Monkey World and Ape Rescue Centre is a one of a kind rehabilitation centre and is always popular with visitors who’ve chosen holiday cottages in Wareham. The crew at Monkey World work side by side with global governments in an aid to put a stop to illegal smuggling of primates from the wild to captivity. The resident primates have been rescued from abuse and smuggling and have been gently coaxed into returning to social living groups. Do not miss this one!

-The Tank Museum is a unique collection of some 300 tanks and vehicles dating back to WWI. History buffs, youngsters and adults alike will love the interactive displays, activity trails, tank action displays and there is even a dress up and play area for kids. Super-informative, educational and entirely fascinating, even if you don’t like tanks.

-Tyneham is a totally deserted village, that was evacuated in the 1940s, when the military took over the village for war training. Inhabitants were assured that they would be able to return, but they were not of course able to. Personal possessions, family photographs, homes, belongings and even the school set up complete with the children’s names remain as they were when the people left. Finally recognised as a heritage site, the homes and buildings are being restored to provide museums.

The Weather in Wareham

The weather in Wareham is mild and cool throughout the year and a holiday cottage in Wareham will have everything you need to curl up toasty and warm at night. Log fires, red wine, brisk walks, sunshine and fun are everything Wareham offers and more. Summer temperatures reach about 22C and winter drops down to 1, but not often below that. It can be wet in winter as is to be expected, but it just makes the coastline look that more beautiful.

Perfect

5 of 5
A perfect holiday home, has everything to make your stay as comfortable as possible. We know the town very well so this is a perfect position to be able to walk to the sea front/ shops/ bars etc and also for walking along the cliff top to Ols Harry Rocks. Will definitely stay there again :)

Fabulous house near great beach

5 of 5
3 grandchIldren thought the house was wonderful with plenty of space and really enjoyed heated floor in conservatory, especially on a couple of cold days. Lots of games etc kept us going. Then the sun came out and we were able to explore the area with the amazing beach. The chain ferry allowed us to quickly get to Corfe castle; a really interesting site and village with lots for us to do. The house is spacious and modern with a lovely, Mediterranean garden. We would like to see it/ sit in it in the spring. Many thanks to Anna (and Nickey)
