A short hop inland from the seaside town of West Bay, Bridport is a bustling market town which is perfectly located for exploring the intriguing Jurassic Coast. The town’s markets still play an important role, with street markets held every Wednesday and Saturday, and a Farmers’ Market every second Saturday of the month in the Arts Centre. Those interested in crafts and gifts will enjoy the Vintage Market which is held every last Sunday of the month from March to October.
Besides the shopping opportunities, Bridport is a great place to indulge in a meal out, with plenty of choice to suit all tastes, and a focus on quality and local providence. In the past, the town flourished in the rope-making industry, trading across the world. Its history can be explored in the Bridport Museum where there’s an eclectic mix of items and artefacts from its colourful past.
