Wareham is the perfect escape on a sunny summer’s day. Take a stroll along the many riverside paths, hire a boat or cruise down the river in style on a paddle steamer. The town’s quay is also a lively social spot, host to many events and activities throughout the year, plus the weekly farmer’s market which is sure to attract a crowd.
Independent is the name of the game in Wareham. Vintage boutiques, quirky antique shops and galleries stocking the most beautiful pieces from talented local artists, all line the town’s central crossroads. The Creative Gallery is worth a browse; run as a co-operative you’ll find artists in residence hard at work and chatting to customers about their creations.
