Dorchester is a market town in southern central Dorset, England and a market is held on Wednesdays.
In the 17th and 18th centuries great fires destroyed large parts of the town, but some of the mediaeval buildings, including Judge Jeffreys' lodgings, and the Tudor almshouse survive in the town centre, amongst the replacement Georgian buildings, many of which are built in Portland limestone
Currently some the most interesting places to visit are these:
-Dinosaur Museum:Dorset has the Dinosaur museum, most recently chosen as one of Britain’s Ten Best Child-Friendly Museums.
-Tutankhamun exhibition:The Tutankhamun exhibition holds a spectacular recreation of Tutankhamun’s tomb and treasures.
