Adventure like the Famous Five in Dorset
Visit the Isle of Purbeck on Dorset’s Jurassic Coast, which is said to have inspired Enid Blyton's books.
Enid Blyton absolutely loved her holidays in Dorset, particularly Purbeck, and visited three times a year for over 20 years.
Some of her best known children's books were inspired by the real places and people she met in Dorset.
Embark on a Famous Five adventure in Dorset and travel back in time to the 1950s.
Climb aboard a steam train and travel past Kirrin Castle to the pretty seaside town of Swanage; take a trip to the mysterious Whispering Island and eat at old smuggling inns and hear stories of their dastardly tales.
Don't forget to pack a picnic of Ginger Beer and corned beef sandwiches to enjoy along the way!
