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.

The boat travels though the harbour & past Old Harry Rocks with a commentary .It stops at Swanage,where you can disembark & explore this pretty town,even time to eat! If you chose to stay onboard the boat continues to Dancing Ledge ,Tilly Whim caves & St Aldhems... More

Not joking when I tell you to wear a wet suit. Unless you're a mutant who enjoys ice water. Bring cash for parking.

This place was great, Kimmeridge Bay just south west of a Corfe Castle. £5 per car to use the toll road and car park but well worth it. Just a gentle stroll down to the Jurassic cliffs where you will find hundreds of fossils just laying around after being brought down after each high tide. No need to hack the... More

Full of wonder, will I find a fossil or not? I actually hired a man (Nigel) to take me and my husband fossil hunting as we would have no clue what to look for. He was great as he taught us the history and how fossils happen and what we are to look for. Found quite a few different kinds... More

If you are reasonably fit and a keen walker there is a great circular walk you can do starting at Worth Matravers, picking up the well marked coastal path heading East until you reach Dancing Ledge (National Trust), then heading inland and picking up the Priests Way to return to Worth for a well-earned drink at the Square & Compass....
