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 fixtures and fittings are luxurious and we found the beds and sofas extremely comfortable. The kitchen is very well equipped. The pub at the end of the lane was lovely, great food and a lovely atmosphere and only having to walk for two minutes from the property was a big bonus. We would definitely all return, thank you Angela :-)
