Walking through time on the Jurassic Coast!

The Purbeck coastline is part of a 95 mile stretch known as the ‘Jurassic Coast’ England’s first natural World Heritage site. This truly outstanding coastline offers a unique insight into 185 million years of the Earth’s history where fossils of strange and terrifying creatures have simply tumbled out of the cliffs.

There is plenty to see from the iconic Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door to fossil hunting at Kimmeridge Bay or visiting some amazing fossil collections at the Etches Museum.
