A town for all seasons!

There’s a great choice of places to stay in Wareham, from cosy little rooms above old pubs, to fully equipped suites in B & B’s and hotels.

Then, once you’ve whiled away a few hours either shopping on our old high street, or been on a great day out at one of the many attractions nearby, you’re spoilt for choice for dining out at one of our restaurants, cafes and pubs!
