Along the Dorset Coastline. A sight to behold

Many will cite the rugged unforgiving coast of Cornwall or the mountains and steep crags of the West Coast of Scotland but for me one of the unsung heroes of the UK is the Dorset coastline. The whole thing is straight out of Hardy’s Wessex and should be duly celebrated. Here it is that Mystical Durdle Door sits, where the French Lieutenant’s Woman stared out to sea on the Cobb at Lyme Regis forlornly. The Isle of Purbeck and Brownsea lie in it. This is the land of the Jurassic Coast where Mary Anning first began finding and cataloguing fossils. It is also the site for Old Harry rocks, Swanage and Poole Harbour. It’s so good you’ll need to get a Dorset Coach Hire firm like https://turnerscoaches.co.uk/ so you can tour it properly.

There is about 100 miles of this glorious coastline to be  explored and marvelled at. Use the coach to get to some of the brillant walks that you can take. If you are into beaches then Swanage, Weymouth and Lyme Regis have some of the most golden in the UK.

But the real jewel in the crown of the Dorset coastline is the majesty of Chesil Beach. This huge shale range stretches all the way to the mysterious isle Portland. A wonderful county indeed.
