Sherborne is an affluent market town in north west Dorset, England. The town is famous for its history, including its abbey, castles, manor house and private school.
Sherborne's two castles are known locally as old and new. Sherborne Old Castle, is now in the care of English Heritage; Cromwell took 16 days to capture it in the Civil War and then destroyed it declaring it 'A Malicious and Mischievous Castle'.
Sherborne Castle built by Sir Walter Raleigh in 1594, contains a fine collection of pictures, porcelain and furniture. The Castle is open to the public from April-October.
It is the variety of shops which is delightful – from a violin repairer to made-to-measure corsetiere, from a host of celebrated antique shops and art galleries to the specialist sources of cheeses and bustling markets on Thursdays and Saturdays.
Good roads skirt the town to south, east and west, and the Waterloo – Exeter main line station is a few minutes walk from the town centre.
