A must see! If you go for a tour by boat, you can see the most wonderful things! Not only things from the Jurassic times, but also more recently, at Old Harry Rocks, you can see bullet holes peppered from aeroplanes in WW2!

Wow. It doesn't get more stunning than this beautiful coastal area. We struck luck as it was a gorgeous day which does justice to this prehistoric looking coastline. Ended up spending the day driving and walking to get to some of the best views imaginable. Got some nice pictures that belong on a canvas. Highly recommended.

Love all the sea and stones and fossils but paying £5 per parking session was over the top. Some had pay by the hour but most were for the day. We only pop in and have a short wander so we missed some beaches due to cost.

One of the most beautiful places I have ever seen!! Drive along the coast, park and visit Durdles Door and lulworth cove! Warning: The walk down is easy!! However, going back up to the car is VERY steep!! pay for parking

Take the X53 bus and try to get the front seat. Great views and you can go from Weymouth to Lyme Regis and back for £8.

wear decent foot ware as there can be some steep and/or long walking depending on what you chose, but bring a camera! It was a busy, summer holiday, Saturday when we went so was quite busy, but plenty of room for everyone, and parking.

One of my favourite places in the world. Starting in Exmouth at Orcombe Point and going east for miles along the coastal path, giving you spectacular scenery and views and if you're lucky enough to have a clear sunny day, it's hard to beat. Some of the paths do get rather close to the cliff edge in places so families... More
