The Tutankhamun Exhibition in Dorchester is a spectacular recreation of Tutankhamun’s tomb and treasures. Spanning time itself, this internationally acclaimed exhibition has featured extensively on television throughout the world.

The Exhibition was established following the success of the treasures of Tutankhamun Exhibition at the British Museum in London. The major treasures are meticulously recreated, wherever possible, in their original materials and the ante-chamber and burial chamber have been accurately recreated together with all tomb furniture and treasures making it possible for you to experience the wonder of discovery and enter the tomb, just as Howard Carter did when he discovered it in 1922.

The Exhibition is open 7 days a week, other than a 2 week period in December. Children under 5 go free and the Exhibition is in the centre of the county town of Dorchester, near all the main car parks.

What our guests say

  • Very peaceful Park

    The wildlife is stunning, we were visited by the ducks on a regular basis which was lovely. Our visit was very enjoyable and we will definitely be back in the future!

  • 5 out of 5 isn't enough!

    This is simply our favorite touring park along the south coast. The location couldn't be better with views to die for and an abundance of fresh sea air. The park is spic and span and extremely well kept with very friendly staff.

  • Best holiday ever!

    This is by far the best Holiday Park I have been to. The views are breath taking with easy access to the beach and nice coastal walks to West Bay. If you're looking for a relaxing holiday in a stunning location, then this is the place to come.

  • A little bit of heaven!

    Golden Cap is a little bit of heaven. The views are awesome, right next to the sea. It's all relaxed and low key just how we like it.

  • Fantastic Park

    10 out of 10 is not enough for this Holiday Park. We have been here 3 times and we love it more and more every time. The park has all you need, with some pitches overlooking the sea and a great restaurant.

  • Lovely tranquil campsite

    The location was great as we could easily walk to the village or local beaches through the beautiful countryside. I would recommend this campsite to families for a peaceful and safe stay.
