The village is probably most famous for its Giant carved into a chalk hillside, but also has many places of interest and amenities including its ancient church, medieval abbey, Tudor cottages, tearoom, village shop with post office, three pubs, modern village hall and village cricket ground. There is also a primary school and a doctors' surgery. Cerne Abbas is a thriving and active community with a host of activities and societies catering to a wide range of interests.
