House Removals Wimborne
Wimborne is a historic market town in East Dorset. The town is an enticing blend of old and new, where high quality modern stores and charming independent boutiques sit side by side in hidden courtyards and pedestrianised squares.
Wimborne is famed for its architecture and the town is regarded as one of the foremost collections of 15th, 16th and 17th-century buildings in Dorset. Local planning has restricted the construction of new buildings, which has meant that the majority of all original buildings in Wimborne are lovingly preserved. The most impressive example of architecture is Wimborne Minster which has been a centre for pilgrimage and prayer for over 1300 years.
