Itinerary

Description

Dorset is a county blessed with a wealth of natural beauty and the stunning scenery of the Jurassic Coast provides a picturesque backdrop to each of the pretty towns and seaside resorts scattered along it. From a scenic coastal cruise to a nostalgic trip on a heritage railway, we enjoy the highlights of this picturesque region by land and sea.

Coach Itinerary

Dorchester Market (half day)
We while away the morning in the charming county town of Dorchester, browsing the stalls of its traditional market. If the weather is clement, a stroll around Borough Gardens is well worth a visit with their iconic, colourful clock and beautiful flower beds.

Swanage Railway & Jurassic Coastal Cruise (full day)
We begin the day in Norden where we board our train for a trip on the heritage Swanage Railway, transporting us back to a bygone era. Our memorable journey takes us through six miles of beautiful scenery, passing the magnificent ruins of Corfe Castle, to the popular seaside resort of Swanage.

Afterwards, we take to the water from Swanage Pier for a two hour round cruise along the Jurassic coastline and through Europe’s largest natural harbour to Poole and back, taking in glorious views of local beaches and sights such as the National Trust’s Brownsea Island, Sandbanks and the imposing landmark of Old Harry Rocks.


Optional Excursion
Jurassic Coast: Lyme Regis, West Bay & Abbotsbury - £10pp (full day)
Join our optional excursion along the Jurassic Coast. Often referred to as the ‘Pearl of Dorset’, Lyme Regis is an unspoilt seaside resort and fishing port, also noted for the fossils found on its beaches and surrounding cliffs. An interesting landmark is The Cobb, a curved stone harbour wall that featured in the film The French Lieutenant’s Woman.

We continue on to West Bay, situated at the western end of Chesil Beach, where the dramatic sandstone cliffs, beach and harbour were the backdrop for the smash-hit TV series Broadchurch.

We end the day in Abbotsbury, a lovely village famous for its subtropical gardens.
