Wimborne, lying in the shadow of its famous twin towered Minster church of Cuthberga, is an excellent touring centre for the surrounding Dorset countryside. Situated near the point where the River Wim, now called the Allen, joins the Stour, Wimborne, with its population of around 6000, serves primarily as a market town.
