TIC Visit to the Estate

On the 6th of November, more than a dozen members of Dorset’s Tourist Information Centre (TIC) teams from Dorchester, Lyme Regis, Bridport and Sherborne were welcomed to a tour around the Symondsbury Estate on the outskirts of Bridport, organised by Lyme Bay Arts’ publicity manager, Karol Kulik.   

From the impressive tithe barn, a popular wedding venue, the visitors went on to have a good look round and meet the staff of The Gallery (see above), the Estate’s new art centre, who were in the process of opening their second next-door gallery, called The Space.  From there, they visited The Shed Hair & Beauty Boutique, the couture centre that is Colmer’s Hill Fashion, as well as the brimming-with-goods House and Garden shop and the Symondsbury Kitchen café.  It all ended with a farewell to some of the Estate’s livestock and to the Estate staff who had made the tour so enjoyable.
