Always wanted to visit Tintagel Castle on the coast. Was a very windy day, but was worth the walk to see an historic icon. Visitor centre was shut the daywe went the first time, but still enjoyed the wonderful views & the lovely village adjacent. Went back again.

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....

Start at Poole(but a visit there isn't recommended) and catch the little ferry from Sandbanks en route to Swanage. This town is worth a look but the coastal cliffs south of Swanage are astounding but difficult to visit. Go west to Weymouth - unfortunately there isn't a coastal road along the coast because of fallings cliffs. Weymouth is an excellent... More

This is a great walk, view and 'photo op' worth it even if you don't go down to the beach but only view it from above. It is a steady walk up but not as bad as it my seem as you start off and look up and is and worth it. The first half is all up hill (... More

This has to be one of the most incredible, wonderful, beautiful areas of coast line I have seen. We started our journey in Lyme Regis and drove along the coast stopping in towns and beaches and cliffs and hiking and just enjoying! We only had a short period of time so we made the most of it hiking in the... More

I've been to over 20 countries but the Dorset coastline really is hard to beat for sheer tranquility. It's beaches are soft and the water is azure . Everything is clean and well looked after,people always make you feel welcome.

Jurassic coast was the place where i spent one of my best days in my life. I walked from Durdle Door to Weymouth approximately in 7 hours (with breaks) and I saw amazing views and panaromas during my journey. I choose that destination as it was highly recommended in the internet forums and I can understand now how beautiful choice... More

What a gem on the south coast. We based ourselves in Bournemouth. (a little dissapointing). It has a fabulous beach which is its redeming feature. We moved on to Poole which is just down the coast a little. Rather quaint place with a photogenic harbour. Spotting a boat loading for a mini Jurrasic Coast trip. We boarded the Solent Scene... More

We visited parts of the Jurassic Coast from London. Have a 5 month old baby so could do much and also we mainly explored places that were reachable by car. One disadvantage here was that driving along the coast is not possible. There is only a walking trail along the coast. We could not afford a long walk :( So... More
