We visited Jurassic Coastline West Bay, as I was searching on the web for World Heritage Sites. The views exceeded my expectations, thoroughly amazing. While you are walking on the beach the view is brilliant, one side the English Channel and The High Cliffs on the other side. You can also walk on top of the cliffs, great walk and... More

Lovely place to visit. A lot of people were visiting to see the stunning location. Seemed an excellent location for walkers too and views to die for in this area. If you are visiting in the summer I think you would need to be out early to find a parking space as it will be very popular

Took the trap from Exeter to Axminster then bus X31 to Lyme. Very picturesque seaside town. The coastal walk seems to go on forever. Not the best weather so views were not as great as could be. Little did I know that the Jurassic Coast bus service starts in Exeter X53 and goes all the way to Wareham and Weymouth.... More

I searched online for the Jurassic Coastal World Heritage drive route, which I had heard from a colleague is spectacular. They weren't wrong! It is breathtaking from the high road which gives excellent vantage points of this beautiful & fascinating coastline. There are a reasonable number of viewing points & of course plenty of places to stop along the way... More

The Jurassic Coast is a world heritage site and for good reason. This stretch of coastline is brimming with fossils from the ever popular ammonites to pterosaurs, ichthyosaurs and tiny insects. I explored from west of Lyme Regis to just east of Charmouth and found plenty of little souvenirs to take away with me. You can keep anything you find... More

Tour and driver were excellent. From Bournemouth to Old Harry's Rocks, to Corfe Castle, to Durdle Door, to Lulworth Cove, the entire day tour was excellent. Good driver. Great sights. Well worth the time....But you have to enjoy a few steep hills to get the full effect.

What a beautiful part of Britain which I have not visited since my childhood.lLots of beautiful beaches and fossil hunting is a must in this part of Britain.The South West coastal path starts at Poole and goes round and ends up in Porlock in Somerset.A great place to holiday with children.
