Our Location

Milton Abbey provides a place for living, learning and shared experiences in an idyllic Dorset location.

Our picturesque grounds and stunning surroundings offer space yet safety and security, and provide an inspirational countryside setting for our pupils.  The Dorset towns of Blandford and Dorchester are located nearby and are conveniently situated for weekend outings and activities, along with the coastal towns of Weymouth, Poole and Bournemouth.

Milton Abbey attracts pupils from a diverse range of geographical locations.  Some pupils live locally and travel daily to the School on our fleet of minibuses, whilst others come from all over the UK as well as overseas.  The School is located just outside of the picturesque village of Milton Abbas in Dorset, approximately 30 miles South West of Salisbury, midway between the towns of Blandford and Dorchester.

The nearest train stations include Dorchester and Gillingham.  Trains from these stations travel direct to London Waterloo, where connections are available to Gatwick and Heathrow airports.  Airports in the South West area include Bournemouth, Southampton, Bristol and Exeter.
