Full description
Enjoy a full day exploring the Jurassic coastline. Start by heading west, through the Dorset countryside, make your way into Purbeck, the gateway to the Jurassic Coast. It's filled with 17th century English villages of thatch cottages and castles which have been fought over for hundreds of years.

Firstly visit Durlston Park, known for its wildlife and as the gateway to the Jurassic Coast. Spend time learning about how the Jurassic Coast came to be. Then head west to Corfe Castle, rich in 1000 years of history, and tales of betrayal and treachery. Stop for lunch in one of the many country pubs or head on through to Durdle Door. This is a famous natural arch and beautiful secluded cove – their existence owed to the collision of continents and the birth of the Alps millions of years ago. From here it's a short hop and a skip to Lulworth Cove. Lulworth Cove is world famous for its unique geology and landforms including the Lulworth Crumple and Stair Hole. Thousands of people each year come to enjoy the panoramic views and crystal clear waters on this stretch of the UNESCO World Heritage Site. 

Then visit Weymouth and Portland, located on the World Heritage Coast, is an explorer's island with curiosities of history and folklore just waiting to be discovered. With three castles and three lighthouses, this little island packs a punch. Spend time in the Victorian fishing harbor town of Weymouth with its little streets, fish and chip shops and two-mile golden beach. Heading further west, see one of the best views in Dorset. High on Abbotsbury hilltop sits St Catherine’s Chapel, a barrel-vaulted 14th century chapel built by the monks of Abbotsbury Abbey as a place of pilgrimage and retreat. Take in the fantastic views of the abbey ruins and the 22 mile look back over Chesil Beach and the Fleet. Then visit the town where the series Broadchurch was filmed before returning to your drop-off location.
