Summer's here bringing its traditional high winds and heavy rains. Cancel the picnic and stroll and get inside, before you catch your death.
Raining? Visit the Fashion Museum.
We have three excellent museums: The Blandford Town Museum where you can dive in to Blandford's rich and exciting history, the Fashion Museum where you can learn what people were wearing to combat the summer rain throughout the ages, and the Royal Signals Museum where you can learn how troops got the message through whatever the weather.
Shop till you drop
Our town is incredibly well catered for considering the size of the place, we have great shops and retail could all use a boost, particularly if tourists are driven away by the rain.

Hit the Gym
Just because its foul weather, you don't have to let your fitness go - get down to Blandford Leisure Centre: join a class, work out in the gym or have a swim.
Eat your Fill
And once you've worked out, you won't feel so guilty about filling up at one of Blandford's many tasty eateries. Try Vecchio Roma for Italian, China China for, well, Chinese, or the Bay Leaf for Indian. Oh, and Namaste Ghurka - see? there's just too many.
