Our bespoke tours

 Walking tours: Here are just a few of the special places we can show you:
Sherborne, Shaftesbury, Dorchester, Bath, Cerne Abbas, the Jurassic Coast (WHS)  Weymouth, Isle of Portland and Lyme Regis. Ask us about any other location that interests you.

Special Interests. Many of our clients have special interests they want to pursue – particular types of places, or periods in history, tracing local descendants etc. We can use our knowledge and expertise to help you research special people, places and times, to plan your own special tour.

Coach tours One of the most popular options for coach parties visiting West Country destinations is for a Sherborne Walks Guide to join the coach for a panoramic tour, followed perhaps by a walking tour. This benefit the less mobile, and enables everyone to see places that are hard to reach on foot.
