The famed Bridport Arts Centre opened in 1973; hosting art exhibitions, music and live screenings.

Bridport was an incredibly important settlement in the early years. In the 9th century, it formed a fortified settlement to fight against the Danish invaders.
Bridport was famous for its rope making. King Henry III once ordered all hemp within 5 miles to be kept solely for Bridport so that more rope could be made for his navy.
The installation of a train station in 1857 made the town far more accessible, making travel between local villages, as well as trading far easier.
As of today, Bridport remains a prosperous market town and is very popular with tourists. This popularity has increased over the past decade with the release of the tv series ‘Broadchurch’, which was filmed in Bridport.
There are currently plenty of property developments occurring in Bridport, one example being the Watton Park development, set to create 33 new homes on the outskirts of Bridport.
The average house price in Bridport during March 2020 was £344,526. This is nigh-on the average for the county of Dorset, and this is to be expected in this iconic area surrounded by famous landmarks.

“The two lads that moved us were first class. They were so helpful and so polite. Could not do enough for us. We wish them all the best for the future.”
Being a small town, you would think that the choice of schools is limited. This may be true when it comes to secondary school; however there are plenty of primary schools in the town.
Burton Bradstock CofE, St Catherine’s Catholic, Symondsbury CofE and St Mary’s CofE are all rated as “good” by Ofsted.
Most children will then filter into The Sir John Colfox School. This is the only secondary school in the area and was given a “good” rating by Ofsted at their last inspection. There are however a few more to the north and west which are also of a high rating.
The best part about Bridport, apart from the thriving arts scene, is the location. To the west, you have Lime Regis, to the south you’ve got the Jurassic Coast and to the east you have Dorchester.
Everything is easily accessible from Bridport, but this doesn’t mean you have to travel far to do something enjoyable and exciting.
