DAY ONE

Morning Let’s start off with a touch of culture, so wander the streets of Wimborne Minster, a Fairtrade-certified town that mixes independent cafes and shops with history and heritage. Wimborne Minster church (free entry, wimborneminster.org.uk) dates back to Saxon times, housing the tomb of Alfred the Great’s brother, Ethelred, King of Wessex. Upstairs there’s a unique ‘chained library’; a collection of ancient tomes dating back to the 14th century that were literally chained to the shelves to prevent theft by unscrupulous scholars. On display are books including the Polyglott Bible, a 350-year old translation of the Bible into nine different languages.

Afternoon Stop off for lunch at The Olive Branch, a classy-but-quirky gastro-pub by the River Allen with Lichtenstein prints on the walls and Calvin and Hobbes wallpaper in the toilets. They call themselves “the most spectacular pub in Dorset”, and with a selection of local ales and gourmet pub grub, who are we to disagree? Don’t leave without trying the melt-in-your-mouth courgette fries (mains from £8, theolivebranchwimborne.co.uk).Next, take a walk along the River Stour to experience some beautiful countryside with big skies and fields of flowers. The picture-postcard hamlet of Pamphill, owned by the National Trust, is a short walk from the river, with rustic thatched cottages and the tiny Vine Inn on Vine Hill. The pub offers a warm welcome, a chat with the locals, seasonal real ales and doorstep sandwiches to die for. Be sure to bring your swimming gear for a dip in the river. Kingston Lacy may sound like a character from one of Dorset native Thomas Hardy’s novels, but it’s a sprawling country house estate close to Pamphill (from £7 for garden and park only, nationaltrust.org.uk/kingston-lacy). Run by the National Trust, Kingston Lacy dates back to the 17th century, when the Bankes family constructed a new home in the aftermath of the bloody Civil War and Restoration. On a walk around the gardens, take in the Egyptian obelisk brought back by adventurer William Bankes, the gorgeous Japanese garden, and the busy Kitchen Garden – complete with adorable pigs. There’s even a National Trust app to guide you around.

Evening No English town is complete without a proper Indian restaurant, and Rimjhim in Wimborne is a cut above the usual with unbeatable service and a fusion of Indian and Nepalese cuisine. Their affordable starter menu encourages sampling, so try the Nepalese lasuni kebab and a dish of choyla, a chargrilled favourite (mains from £7.95, 9 Leigh Road, rimjhimwimborne.co.uk).

DAY TWO

Morning Head to Bournemouth to enjoy some of England’s finest beaches and the gateway to the world-famous Jurassic Coast. For breakfast, enjoy fresh local produce at Urban Reef, a smartly designed bar/cafe/deli on the Boscombe promenade. Its breakfast menu includes a full English with Dorset pork sausages, and a great view from the beachfront terrace across the bay (on the promenade near Boscombe Pier,  urbanreef.com).Once your breakfast’s gone down, head right outside to the Sorted Surf School to catch some waves (lessons from £30, bournemouth-surfschool.co.uk). Boscombe boasts Europe’s first artificial surf reef, recently reopened for coastal activities including diving and wind surfing.

Afternoon Established by Italian ice cream enthusiast Luigi Bray in 2008, Giggi Gelateria was rated the best ice cream outlet on the South Coast by The Times. This is genuine homemade ice cream made the Italian way, with flavours ranging from classic vanilla to Christmas pudding, and a selection of sorbets as well. Pick any three flavours and they’ll blend them together into a creamy frappe (10 Burlington Arcade, giggigelateria.co.uk).Cycle routes are plentiful in Bourne-mouth, so hire a bike (from £8 for four hours, koolcyclehirebournemouth.co.uk) and go exploring. Head westwards towards Poole and take in the natural harbour, the largest in Europe. Cycle back towards the Lower Gardens near Bournemouth Pier, and drop in on the Pinewalk Art Exhibition (until September 7), a sprawling open-air art display that’s been running for more than 50 years. You can browse paintings, photography and sculptures created by artists from across the country, and with a range of artists from students to professionals, you might even get to pick up a genuinely unique souvenir.With its sandy beaches, Bournemouth is the home to British beach volleyball, and you might catch one of the tournaments held throughout summer. Test your skills and show the locals how it’s done at one of the free courts on the beach, east of the pier.

Evening After 6pm, enjoy the sunset on the beach with the hot sizzle of a barbecue and a few beers. Then make your way along the promenade to the beachfront Aruba bar and restaurant, a hotspot with great views, live music and DJs on Sundays. There’s a full selection of tropical cocktails, although Sex on the Beach is tellingly missing (cocktails from £5.50, Pier Approach, aruba-bournemouth.co.uk).Alternatively you could grab a snack and a beer at Sixty Million Postcards, an American-style diner with a cinema-style marquee over the entrance. It’s the perfect place to digest your weekend with cheap booze, a plate of nachos and cosy booth seating (19-21, Exeter Road,  sixtymillionpostcards.com).

Ishant Sharma has starred for India as England reach tea having lost six wickets in the afternoon session on day three of the first Test at Trent Bridge.

The partnership between Sam Robson and Gary Ballance was broken as Sharma claimed the wicket of Robson (59) for an lbw, while Ballance (71) fell the same way not long after following another delivery from the batsman.

Joe Root and Ian Bell attempted to steady England’s innings, but Sharma struck again when Bell made a poor late decision to pull out of the shot, but he caught the edge and the ball fell into the hands of MS Dhoni.

The batsman headed back to the pavilion having hit 25 from 37 balls, but it wasn’t long before he was joined by Moeen Ali (14) and Matt Prior (5), who was unfairly declared out by the umpire after being caught behind, despite no evidence of a nick.

Another wicket fell in quick succession following Prior’s dismissal as Ben Stokes went out for a duck after getting caught out by Dhoni following Bhuvneshwar Kumar‘s delivery.

Joe Root (13 not out) and Stuart Broad (1 not out) have ended the session on 205-7.

England finally found the breakthrough at Trent Bridge by dismissing the wicket of Murali Vijay before lunch, with India on 342-5 on day two of the first Test.

The tourists began the day on 259-4, and could have been another wicket down in the early stages of the session following Stuart Broad‘s delivery to MS Dhoni.

The Indian batsman drove the ball between wicketkeeper Matt Prior and slip, but the England player failed to keep the ball in his gloves as he dived to his right to catch it.

England’s bowlers, including Broad, Liam Plunkett, Ben Stokes, Joe Root and Moeen Ali, continued to be halted by Dhoni and Vijay until James Anderson sent Vijay packing for an lbw, which wouldn’t have stood if India had opted to use DRS in their Test matches.

The 30-year-old left the crease having hit 146 runs from 361 deliveries, while Dhoni remains unbeaten on 81 and Ravindra Jadeja, who starting off by hitting Ali for two sixes, sits unbeaten on 24.

Her friend Meredith is 23 and from Dorset “we had to go to the beach sessions and so we went there first and slept in my little micra.”

“It will be pretty impressive to see Snoop Dogg and also Bastille, they are one of my favourites.” said Joe Ainsley from Truro.

“It is great for the locals that come here, we don’t really have anything, this is our only big festivals and lots of people come from all the UK.”

Juventus have reportedly told Manchester United that they will have to pay at least £62m if they want to sign Arturo Vidal.

The 27-year-old is thought to be a target for new United manager Louis van Gaal and has been constantly linked with a move to Old Trafford this summer.

According to the Daily Star, Juventus want £50m for Vidal plus Nani, who is rated at £12m.

The Italian champions could ask for Patrice Evra to be included as part of the transfer, but the Red Devils are thought to be unwilling to pay over the odds.

Vidal joined Juventus in 2011 from Bayer Leverkusen and has won the Serie A title during each season he has been at the club.

Bath winger Semesa Rokoduguni has penned a one-year contract extension with the Aviva Premiership club.

The 26-year-old’s new terms at the Recreation Ground are due to run until the end of the 2015-16 season.

Rokoduguni, who has represented England Saxons, signed his first professional deal with Bath in 2012.

“It felt like the natural choice. I love it here at Bath,” he told the club’s official website.

“The environment is superb – we’re like a big family – and everybody wants to play their part in the next stage of the team’s development.”

Bath get their Aviva Premiership campaign underway at Sale Sharks on September 6.

Nico Rosberg has insisted that he would have won the British Grand Prix had he not suffered a gearbox failure at Silverstone this afternoon.

The Mercedes driver had been leading the race when he got stuck in fifth gear, allowing teammate Lewis Hamilton to overtake him before retiring at the side of the track.

The German told Sky Sports News: “It is always a good battle, but I was very much in control up until then which is why I was all the more disappointed. I’m very confident that I would have won the race.

“Formula 1 cars are always fragile as they are built right on the edge. You need the ultimate performance so it means things are built lighter and smaller than ever. I think it gives people a glimpse for people of how complex the cars are and it is not always an easy ride.”

Hamilton went on to win the race, cutting Rosberg’s lead at the top of the drivers’ standings to four points.

Novak Djokovic has said that Grigor Dimitrov is now “the man to beat” at Wimbledon.

The Bulgarian defeated reigning champion Andy Murray in straight sets on Wednesday afternoon to set up a semi-final meeting with world number two Djokovic.

“The fact he hasn’t lost a match on grass this season says it all about his quality,” Djokovic is quoted as saying by Sky Sports News.

“He’s definitely the man to beat here now, and winning against Andy in straight sets, many people look at him as a potential grand slam winner. So now that’s maybe here, or maybe in the grand slams to follow.

“He has won tournaments on different surfaces this year, so he has the ability to adjust. He’s getting more experienced now playing on the big stage, which is definitely useful for big tournaments like this.”

Djokovic, 27, has now missed out on just one of the last 17 Grand Slam semi-finals.

Fraizer Campbell will move to Crystal Palace for a reported £1m after the London side triggered the striker’s release clause, ending his 18 months at Cardiff.

The 26-year-old will make his way back to the Premier League, with Leicester City also reported to be seeking his signature, according to BBC Sport.

With Campbell’s wealth of experience in the Premier League, the Eagles will become the striker’s fifth club in England’s highest league competition.

Campbell is only Palace’s second signing after they acquired Blackpool’s Chris Kettings on a free transfer last month.

The West Indies have reached lunch on 159-2 on day two of the third Test against New Zealand.

The hosts ended day one in Barbados on 32 runs without loss after New Zealand were bowled all out for 293.

Chris Gayle was the first wicket to go for the West Indies when he was caught out by Hamish Rutherford following a Mark Craig delivery.

After Gayle left the field having taken 42 runs from 53 balls, Kraigg Braithwaite and Kirk Edwards steadied the West Indies’ attack until Braithwaite was dismissed on 68.

Edwards (41 not out) and Darren Bravo will return to the crease for the afternoon session.
