Attraction Information

Gold Hill Museum and Garden
Local life and history are portrayed here through artifacts, costume, photos, ceramics, tools, domestic items and the town's first fire engine.
Marvel at the intricate Dorset buttons on display, and the ‘Byzant', a gold-coloured festival totem that played a central role in the town's water gathering ceremony.
Outside there is also an award wining garden with seating.
