Quintessentially English, Bridport and its surroundings were used as settings for the TV series ‘River Cottage’ whilst nearby is a small fishing harbour, location of the BBC drama ‘Harbour Lights’.

The ancient town centre – two miles from the coast - lies on the River Brit and is still a centre for rope, nets and ale making. Thomas Hardy re-named it ‘Port Bredy’ in his novels.
