Heirlooms is located in the centre of the historic market town of Wareham, the Gateway to the Isle of Purbeck and the World Heritage Jurassic Coast. Wareham dates back to Saxon times, when it was a thriving port on the banks of the River Frome. The town is still surrounded by the Saxon earthen walls and the Saxon church of St. Martins is perched on the Walls as a sentinel to the entrance of the town.

There are many attractions to visit – the Quay, riverside walks, the Priory church of Lady St. Mary, lots of pubs and cafes, and many independent shops, along with a Saturday Market. All this against the backdrop of the stunning Purbeck Hills, dominated by Creech Barrow.

Parking is available on-street or nearby at 2 public car-parks, one being directly behind the shop, in St. John’s Hill, and accessed on foot down a pedestrianised lane beside the shop, or on the picturesque Wareham Quay.

Bus links: The Jurassic Coast bus, stopping at the town centre, connecting Bournemouth to Exeter, as well as local buses from Swanage (10 miles) via Corfe Castle (5 miles).
