The Minster church of St Cuthburga has something to offer visitors of all ages. As well as the fine Norman architecture, there is the famous astronomical clock, the Quarterjack, a life-size soldier on the West Tower, and the unique Chained Library. There is also a gift shop. The site is widely accessible, with wheelchair access as well.
Wimborne Model Town & Gardens

The hundreds of superbly crafted models, together with wonderful miniature shop window displays, provide a fascinating insight into the goods and services available to local folk some 60 years ago.
