Despite enjoying many holidays here as a child, I have never visited this village, and neither had my elderly Mother. A fascinating wander around a strangely atmospheric place.

You will need to check when the military are firing as not all roads and beaches are open when they are training. Weekends are usually ok. The Tyneham village is very small and has a large car park where a suggested £2 donation is requested....More

A great day out to the village of Tyneham. It was moving and sad to experience the desolation of the village and to picture how it had been before being commandeered by the army. Information was excellent as was the walk by the sea.

Fascinating place for a visit, the history there is amazing (and quite sad) and the experience of running around the ruins is fabulous for kids. The walk down to the bay is well worth the effort as it is a spectacular place.
