Recommendations to see and do in Dorset

I will be taking my partner for a few days trip to Dorset, I would be grateful if anyone could recommend:

• areas/locations that have spectacular views.

• Things to see and do that shouldn’t be missed

We already have Corfe Castle, Lulworth Cove & Durdle Door in our plans

Any information/advice will be greatly appreciated

Many Thanks

if driving the stretch of road between Lyme Regis and Weymouth - the views are marginally better driven that way rather than Weymouth to Lyme. Stop at Abbotsbury and climb up to St Catherine's Chapel. If around June visit the Swannery to see nests and babies, consider at other times of year. Stop at Lyme or Charmouth for fossil hunting or visit Golden Cap for the view http://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/golden-cap/

Consider Shaftesbury and the famous location where the Hovis ad was filmed http://www.shaftesburydorset.com/

Eat in Bridport or West Bay, a bit of a foodie area, or get fish and chips on Portland
