The lively old market town of Bridport lies on the confluence of the rivers Brit and Asker. As the name suggests Bridport was once an active port, however the river has long since silted up. The attractive town centre has many elegant Georgian red brick buildings over a thousand of which are listed. These mostly date back to the town's heyday as a centre for rope making.

Bridport, Dorset

These days Bridport has experienced a minor renaissance largely thanks to Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall and his River Cottage series. Referred to as Notting Hill-on-Sea by some, the town has upped its game and has some good cafes and restaurants along with a thriving, twice-weekly market offering food, flowers and antiques. There is even an annual literary festival.

One of Bridport's greatest assets is its proximity to the coast. The small seaside village of West Bay is also known as Bridport Harbour. This attractive little port is a popular holiday resort and is flanked by great beaches. It's hard to escape the fact you are on the Jurassic Coast with the huge vertical East Cliff being of much geological interest.
