Description

England’s first UNESCO designated natural World Heritage Site, the Jurassic coastline from East Devon to Dorset covers 95 miles of stunning rock formations, quaint villages and rolling heathland; representing over 185 million years of the earth's history in its landscape.

The trail begins in Exmouth where the oldest Triassic rocks layer deep red, and ends in Studland at Old Harry Rock. This vibrant hike surveys through the Jurassic and Crustaceous periods, forming what is commonly known as the Jurassic Coast.

Leaving the Georgian town of Weymouth, The Jurassic Coast heads east, climbing grassy uplands to the soaring heights of White Nothe. Venturing further, the path meets the perfect scallop-shaped cove at Lulworth, the imposing Iron Age fort at Flower’s Barrow and the fossil-rich bay at Kimmeridge. You will here view familiar white chalk cliffs, notorious with smugglers and pirates who have sculpted the landscape just as much as the sea.

Journey through a patchwork of quiet fields bounded by ancient stone walls, and discover Durlston’s National Nature Reserve, awash with vibrant wild flowers. A short ferry crossing to Bournemouth signals the end of the coastal path; be sure to admire the intricate archipelago at Poole!

Throughout your journey, relax each evening in luxury, seaside accommodations. From beautiful country inns, to cosy bed and breakfasts, you will unwind from your adventurous hikes, and enjoy some of Dorset's finest dining options.
