The Jurassic Coast with Broadchurch Location!

ITINERARY

TOUR TIME: 7-8HRS

We head west into Purbeck for more Jurassic Fun!
Feel the 180 million year history!


The Jurassic Coast is 95 miles of coastline on the south of England, stretching from Old Harry Rocks to Exmouth in Devon. Formed over 185 million years mainly known for its rock formations, stunning coastline and fossils.

Durdle Door

From Lulworth Castle we head to the stunning Jurassic Coast and Durdle Door. Durdle Door is a natural arch cut into the Portland Stone (Limestone) found on the south coast of England in the county of Dorset. The rocks that the arch is made up of is thought to be  approximately 140 million  years old. Originally the arch would have been a series of caves along the coast, made from cracks in the layers of rock that have been hollowed out. It first appeared on the first edition of the Ordnance Survey map, dated 1811, spelt Dirdale Door.

Lulworth Cove

A short walk from Durdle Door to Lulworth Cove. The cove is the prime dorset attraction for the budding geographer or simply for a leisurely walk along the Natural World Heritage Coastline and the challenging hills. Lulworth Cove was formed approximately 10,000 years ago by the awesome powers of a river and the sea. It continues to evolve behind a narrow Portland stone entrance as the softer Purbeck, Wealdon, Greensand and Chalk exposures are eroded.

Weymouth & Portland

From Lulworth we take a drive through the Dorset countryside to the site of the 2012 sailing olympics the 'isle' of Portland. Located on the World Heritage Coast, is an explorer's Island with curiosities of history and folklore just waiting to be discovered. We look west over the 18 miles of Chesil beach and the southernmost tip of the Jurassic Coast. With its 3 castles and 3 lighthouses, this little island packs a punch!

The Village of Abbotsbury

From Portland heading to the village of Abbotsbury, we look back over St Catherine's Chapel eastwards towards Portland and the Jurassic Coast. The quaint village of Abbotsbury is set amongst the hills behind the great Chesil Bank and is well-known worldwide for it's Swannery, Sub-Tropical Gardens and Abbey. See the coastal road to the west of the village offers superb views of the Fleet and Portland.

Broadchurch & Westbay

Then we visit the famous town where Broadchurch was filmed! On our way to Westbay in the Market town of Bridport. The golden strata of nearby East Cliff are one of the most distinctive features of the Jurassic Coast, and the area is very popular with walkers. East Beach has been designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest, and forms one end of Chesil Beach, which extends 18 miles south east to the Isle of Portland. The cliffs here are very unstable, so it’s important to keep well clear of the cliff edges and bases.
