Catch the early morning ferry across to the Isle of Purbeck. First stop is in Studland for a great view across the bay to Old Harry Rocks, the starting point of the Jurassic Coast, England’s first natural UNESCO World Heritage Site. Another viewpoint allows us to take in breathtaking views across Poole Harbour and towards Brownsea Island.
By mid morning we arrive at Durlston Country Park. Here we visit the Jurassic Coast visitor centre housed in the recently refurbished Durlston Castle. There’s time for a morning coffee stop overlooking the famous Great Globe and a chance to take the cliff top walk along to Tilly Whim Caves and the Anvil Point Lighthouse. For every visitor we bring to Durlston Country Park, we make a contribution towards a bursary that helps to support their volunteer programme.
Heading west we drive through some of the tiny lanes and villages that give Purbeck its unique character. Take lunch in the village of Corfe Castle, dominated by the ruins that give it its name. Entrance to the castle itself not included (Free to National Trust members).
After lunch take a gentle drive along the coast taking in more stunning scenery as we head for an afternoon at Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door. Walk down to Man o’ War Rocks and view the magnificent rock arch of Durdle Door, hewn from the Portland limestone beds. Finally, head down to Lulworth Cove and see the famous Lulworth Crumple rock formation in Stair Hole. Lulworth Cove has a number of pubs, cafes and tea rooms where there is plenty of time to relax and refresh.
