Jurassic Coast Weekend - Isabel Hospice

Take on the challenge

Jurassic Coast Challenge

Stretching 95 miles between Old Harry Rocks in Dorset, to Orcombe Point in East Devon, the Jurassic Coast – England’s First Natural Heritage Site – is the most geological coastline in the world. The exposed cliff sections allow you to look back through 185 million years of time; dinosaur remains have been found here, and it’s a fossil hunters paradise.

Explore some of its most spectacular scenery, from the renowned natural stoned archway of Durdle Door to the beautiful circular Lulworth Cove as you continuously climb and descend the steep hills. You will camp at a lovely campsite a short distance from the route.

Detailed Itinerary

Day 2: Durlston Head – Kimmeridge

Continuing west, over slopes dating back from medieval times, the route dips down to reveal small bays and ledges with access to the sea, Finally you will see Kimmeridge Bay in the distance.
