Blandford Forum's most impressive examples of Georgian architecture are its stone bridge with six arches, its St Peter and St Paul church, and the Corn Exchange. Every other year, Blandford Forum celebrates its Georgian history during the Georgian Fayre, when thousands of visitors enjoy the stalls, presentations, and fun fair during the first week of May.
Blandford Forum's other major attractions are the gardens and manor of Chettle House, the Blandford Forum Museum, and the clothing collection at Mrs Pennys Cavalcade of Costume. The Royal Signals Museum, the national army communications museum of the United Kingdom, is located in the nearby Blandford Camp military base.
