The charming market town of Wareham, an ancient town and former royal borough, is a veritable delight wherever you look at any time of the year. Between the rivers Frome and Piddle, the attractive gateway to the Isle of Purbeck was a major port until the Middle Ages. Now a thriving market town, happily combining the old and the new for locals and visitors alike.
Wareham Town Council was formed after local government re-organisation in 1974 and has 16 Councillors who represent all parts of the town. It has a long tradition of Town Mayors stretching back to 1336, and every name to date is recorded on panels in the Council Chamber.
