Included Sightseeing Excursions

The Jurassic Coast

A full day excursion exploring the ‘Jurassic Coast’, renowned for its sandy beaches, spectacular cliff tops, elegant resorts and dinosaur fossils. We head first to the Isle of Portland to enjoy the magnificence of Chesil Beach and the Jurassic Coast that stretches out before us. Continuing along the coast we make our way to West Bay - ITV’s Broadchurch, where there is an opportunity to ‘walk’ on the western end of the great shingle barrier of Chesil Beach before arriving in Abbotsbury where the coastal views are superb.

Dorset Delights

Today we head for the Isle of Purbeck, a delightful peninsula that extends between the Channel and Poole Harbour. Passing the ruins of Corfe Castle we come to the small port and seaside resort of Swanage, located at the eastern end of the Jurassic Coast. Here you will discover a lovely sandy beach and the terminus of the finely preserved Swanage Steam Railway.

Ancient Wessex

This morning we head for Dorchester, famous as the home of Thomas Hardy and depicted in his novels as ‘Casterbridge’. This afternoon we tour into the heart of the countryside to reach the once capital of Wessex, Sherborne. The Abbey dates to Saxon times and the ruined castle was once the home of Sir Walter Raleigh, whilst the town has lots of charm and interesting speciality shops.
