Walk along Wareham Town Wall - The Wareham Town Wall dates back to Saxon times and provides an enjoyable and educational walk around the town. The easiest place to start the walk is from the centre of Wareham and heading up West Street past the Rex Cinema. At the end of the row of shops and houses the wall will appear at a grassy bank on your right up onto which there is a path. Follow the path and signposts all the way round. If you feel the walk is too long you can turn back into town at almost any point.
Traditional Cinema - The Rex Cinema in Wareham is maintained as a traditional cinema and often screens art house cinema. There is a lovely little bar for wine and snacks which can be enjoyed with the film. - www.therex.co.uk
