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.

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
