Dorset, Dorset, Dorset. And some more Dorset. Join us on a trip around the world as we check out… Dorset

Dorset, UK

You know this one! The Dorset we call home is a beautiful part of the world. Take a stroll near Worth Matravers above!


Dorset, Vermont

Heading across the pond now to Dorset in Bennington County, Vermont, with a population of just over 2,000 as of 2010. It’s home to the USA’s oldest marble quarry and Bill Wilson - founder of Alcoholics Anonymous - was born there. We’ve dropped you in on Dorset in Street View above.


Dorset, Minnesota

This tiny community in the north of the United States has an estimated population of 22; and yes, we’re not totally sure why they couldn’t accurately determine that number. Every year the symbolic position of Mayor of Dorset is selected through picking names from a hat. Back in 2012, three-year-old Bobby Tufts was elected mayor. He actually got re-elected the following year too. Take a look at the place on Street View above.


Dorset, Ontario

Into Canada now as we head to a Dorset named by settlers that arrived from here in the UK. Surrounded by lakes and forests, it looks a beautiful part of the world, as you can see!


Dorset Island

Named after Edward Sackville, the 4th Earl of Dorset, this is one of the group of Canadian Arctic islands. On the north side of the island is the Inuit hamlet of Cape Dorset. Other residents include Arctic wolves, polar bears, beluga whales, peregrine falcons and Arctic foxes! Google haven’t actually taken their Street View van to Dorset Island yet, but we’ve attached a satellite image picture above.
