The town of Blandford, formally known as Blandford Forum, is located approximately halfway between Poole and Salisbury. Blandford Forum is 32kms from Bournemouth International Airport and 24kms from Poole Railway Station by car hire in Blandford.

Blandford Forum is one of the best examples of a British town during the Georgian era as the entire town had to be rebuilt after an 18th century fire. 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.
Also near Blandford Forum is the picturesque village of Blandford St Mary, where the Badger Brewery of Hall and Woodhouse has been based since Blandford Forum resident Charles Hall founded it in 1777.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?
To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card.
