Information about Shaftesbury
EyeStyle Centre Opticians has been located in Shaftesbury high street for over 15 years. Shaftesbury is a wonderful place to shop as it is full of unique individual shops and cafes, some most local dorset products. Shaftesbury is a small market town in Dorset with a fascinating history going back to Saxon times. The town is the home of Gold Hill (made famous by the “Hovis” advert with the boy pushing the bike up the hill) and has magnificent views over Hardy’s Blackmore Vale. It is the gateway to the South West from where you can tour the area from Stonehenge to the east to Bath and Bristol to the north and the Jurassic Coast to the south.
