Find cottages in BridportVisit Bridport

Bridport is a thriving market town and well positioned for exploring Dorset's beautiful Jurassic Coast. Despite its small size it has a thriving cultural scene with a cinema, theatre and arts centre.

The Electric Palace Cinema closed in 1999, but a successful local campaign saw it saved, listed to protect the building, and refurbished by a new owner to include a beautiful art deco bar. The Lyric Theatre has a fantastic programme of events and is also home to a children's theatre company called Stuff and Nonsense, who provide marvellous entertainment for local and visiting families.

There are plenty of annual events and festivals here; the Bridport Literary Festival is held in November and attracts plenty of famous and respected authors. Foodies will be drawn to the Food Festival in June, where there is plenty of local produce to enjoy. The event culminates with the Round Table Beer Festival.

The third Saturday in August plays host to the annual carnival, which includes a float parade, fun fair and fete, and a torchlight procession with 1500 torches carried two miles to a huge bonfire at West Bay, fireworks and music.

A bit quirkier is the Hat Festival, which takes place over a September weekend every year and sees the town centre inundated with thousands of hat-wearing festival goers.

The Jurassic Coast is an attraction that draws in thousands of visitors. Britain's first World Heritage Site stretches just under a hundred miles of awe-inspiring coastline, with geology dating back 185 million years.

Search for cottages in Bridport; a perfect holiday base, whether you want to relax on the beach, go fossil hunting or soak up some culture.
