You might be interested in the Financial Section on this site. Banks, like Building Societies, often have a restricted range of services - and are notoriously conservative when investing your money. This usually results in very low rates of return. Our financial section covers other Financial Institutions, Mortgages, Investment Consultants, Credit & Finance Companies - and Crowd Funding!

Also see below for all the Building Societies around Your Postcode with their contact details. Just click through to go to a map, street views, reviews and a link to their own websites.

Local Chambers of Commerce for BH20 6JA. These can be an extraordinarily effective way of getting into the business community and / or getting things done. Equally they can be entirely useless depending on the chair. If they have networking events associated with them definitely go, and keep going, if you have a business that need local support. What you put in is exactly what you get out. Below is the national site. Watch this slot - it might improve!

Purbeck Sports Centre

Worgret Rd, Wareham BH20 4PH, UK – 01929 500000

Great sports centre, it offers swimming, gymnastics, tennis and archery lessons, although to use the gym even though you're a gym member somewhere else they charge you a ridiculous induction fee this has put off every visitor who comes to see my wife and I in the last 5 years, it's like charging Arnold Schwarzenegger to teach him how to use the gym. Ridiculous.

We use this centre for archery tournaments and they have always been very helpful and the site is generally clean and tidy

Because Jesus lives here.

St Martin's-on-The-Walls

North St, Wareham BH20 4AG, UK – 01929 550905

This amazing Saxon church holds the sculptor of T.E. Lawrence by Eric Kennington. Lawrence, while living at Clouds Hill, would come to Wareham on his motorbike and frequent a nearby cafe. The small church, just inside the old walls of the town, still has services and is worthy of a visit for its simple architecture as much as to see the amazing sculpture. Opening times are variable and, when closed, the visitor is directed to a nearby shop to request the key.

Lovely views

The Priory Hotel

Church Green, Wareham BH20 4ND, UK – 01929 551666

Lovely hotel and restaurant. Location is incredible on the banks of the tidal river. Food and service was better than expected, especially the restaurant team.

Went for afternoon tea overlooking the river in the wonderful garden of the hotel. Was perfect on a beautiful sunny afternoon. Lovely and highly recommended.

The portions are a very nice size and the food we had was exceptionally good. It is definitely value for money. The service we received this also very good We will definitely be going back again for another meal.

Very clean and pleasant environment. Very friendly and professional staff. Delicious and fresh food. Highly recommend.

The Italian Kitchen

37 South St, Wareham BH20 4LP, UK – 01929 550990

Great food with attentive and friendly restaurant staff. We had the Sea bass, Veal, Steak and Pork loin. Delicious! Portions aren't huge but mains come with vegetables (also not huge). Couldn't fault the food, definitely quality over quantity. We ended up having dessert which usually we wouldn't be able to manage. Smart looking restaurant. Nice glasses and crockery. We had lovely view of the river from one of the window seats.

Had a lovely time here whilst visiting Dorset best risotto I have had for a long long time and nothing too much trouble. Very friendly service great food and lovely views. Overall very pleasant.
