The Jurassic Coast is located in the South of England and was England’s first natural World Heritage Site.
It stretches 95 miles from Orcombe Point at Exmouth, East Devon to Old Harry Rocks at Studland, Dorset, with rocks dating back 185 million years. It is part of the much longer South West Coast Path trail, which covers a 630-mile route around the coastline of the South West peninsula.
The Jurassic Coast area is a fossil hunter’s dream with dinosaur remains having been found here.
You will walk approximately 25 miles along the beautiful coastal path from Lulworth to Studland. The undulating cliffs provide stunning views over the sea and surrounding landscape and offer a very worthy challenge!

Lulworth Cove to Worth Matravers
