Just two hours from London, ‘Silicon South’ refers to the county of Dorset on the south coast of the UK. We’re very proud about our miles and miles of coastline, sandy beaches, and our very own microclimate. 

We offer a cosmopolitan, outdoors lifestyle  combined with a thriving and rapidly growing digital and creative hub. It’s no wonder so many digital professionals have chosen to make the region their home.
