Located a gentle 5 minutes stroll from the centre of this historic market town, the Cadet Centre is an excellent venue for groups of young people. It is able to house up to 60 young people and 16 adults for a weekend in the historic Hardy County.

Dorchester is an excellent stopping off point for the whole county, so whether you are interested in the history, or using it as a base to go adventure training, this is an excellent place to be.

The Cadet Centre is co-located with the Army Reserve Centre, situated behind the old Keep, which now houses the military museum. The town is served by good road and rail links.

The Cadet Centre is a convenient venue for a variety of events. This venue benefits from on-site, secure parking for up to 25 cars, and a flood-lit football pitch.
