Poundbury is designed with a set of key human-centred principles to put people before cars, integrated places of work with homes and invest in buildings of exceptionally high construction quality and aesthetic standards. Since breaking ground in 1993, the community has achieved worldwide acclaim from architects, town planners, academics and house builders, both for its intelligent design and success in creating a highly desirable and diverse new community.
Queen Mother Square is the centre of life in Poundbury, with its collection of independent shops - including a butcher and a Waitrose supermarket and the 20-bedroom Duchess of Cornwall Inn. Smaller squares, beautiful gardens and wilder areas of parkland are woven into the fabric of Poundbury, including the formal gardens and expansive lawns of Pavilion Green stretching north of Royal Pavilion.
A short journey from both Dorchester South and Dorchester West stations, residents of Royal Pavilion are easily connected to the South West trains network, with direct trains into London Waterloo. The A35 and A37 open up all of Dorset's wonderful landscape, which is recognised as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, as well as providing easy access to its dramatic coastline from Lyme Regis and the Jurassic Coast to Corfe Castle and the Isle of Purbeck.
