Enid Blyton once said, “My imagination contains all the things I have ever seen or heard, things my conscious mind has long forgotten. I don’t think that I use anything I have not seen or experienced — I don’t think I could.”

As the creator of the Famous Five adventures, many of the places in Enid Byton’s stories, are to be found in Dorset, more specifically in the beautiful Studland area where she often holidayed and where she and her husband bought property.

This walking and cycling tour discovers the places in Dorset that inspired her. We’ve designed the itinerary to be largely traffic free and gentle to enable young readers to follow in her footsteps. Where will your imagination take you?
