There are no motorways in Dorset but a network of A roads across the county and two railway main lines connect your serviced office in Dorset to London. Dorset has ports located in Poole, Weymouth and Portland and is also home to an international airport. The county offers a variety of museums, theatres and festivals, and is host to one of Europe's largest outdoor shows.
There is a military presence in Dorset bringing with it a mixed effect on the local economy, with additional employment for civilians, but on occasion a negative impact on the tourist trade when popular areas are closed for military manoeuvres. Other major employers in the county include BAE Systems, Sunseeker International, J.P. Morgan and Bournemouth University.
Dorset's three ports generate a substantial amount of trade and tourism. Dorset tourism has become increasingly important to the economy. The waters around Weymouth and Portland were used for the sailing events in the 2012 Summer Olympic Games; the area therefore underwent an increased investment in its infrastructure resulting in a growth of the marine leisure sector and an on-going positive effect on businesses in the area.
