This is an inexpensive treat for locals & visitors to the area . 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....

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
