About the Author

Hi! I’m Emily Luxton, a born-and-bred Dorset local who LOVES her home county. Even after years travelling the world as a full-time travel blogger, the coast and countryside of Dorset remains one of my favourite places in the world. I grew up in Weymouth, so I like to think I know a thing or two about this stunning county.

I started this Dorset Travel Guide as a way to share my love of the area with tourists, and hopefully inspire more people to visit and explore.
