Breathtaking

Such a spectacular stretch of coastline, and ideal for a walk along the top of the cliffs (keep away from the edge though!), or along the beach.

The coast is breathtaking and was well worth our long drive from the Cotswolds. It was truly awe inspiring. There were few tourists when we visited and perfect weather. It was a highlight of our trip to England.

There are families with kids, old and young with all sorts of tools trying to find a piece of fossils to bring home.

Must visit/see whilst in Dorset. We absolutely loved out day exploring the Jurassic Coast. We started the morning with coffee on the beach at West bay before moving onto Charmouth and spent an hour or two fossil hunting and visited the Charmouth Fossil Heritage museum. Parking in both places was reasonable.. £1 per hour. Great fun!

We came here for me to go on the rib ride. Unfortunately when I started to Queue the girl said they may not do any more that day because of the sea conditions. So we came away and went for a walk instead. The beach was so hard to walk on. Don't go in open toes. Very pretty though. I... More
