48 Hours in and around the Dorset Coast - A weekend in Dorset
Here’s my suggestions for what to do for a weekend in Dorset and around the Dorset coast.
Dorset, situated on the south coast of England boasts some of the country’s finest blue flag awarded beaches & the world renowned Jurassic Coast.
Stretching for 95 miles starting from Old Harry Rocks at Studland Bay before leaving the county towards Devon.
Whether you want to fossil hunt in Lyme Regis or sunbathe on Bournemouth beach the choices are endless.
Rich in natural beauty, Dorset is full of rolling countryside & possibilities to see wildlife in abundance.
Arguably Dorset’s most famous landmark; the towering limestone arch at Durdle Door with the picturesque horseshoe bay of Lulworth cove nearby & Thomas Hardy’s picture postcard cottage near the historical County market town of Dorchester.
Britain’s largest Iron Age hill Fort Maiden Castle dating back to 600 BC lies just 2 miles south of Dorchester & the family friendly County Museum is also situated in the town.
Your weekend in Dorset would not be complete without a ride on Bournemouth’s Big Wheel, standing more than 100 feet tall and providing views across this award winning resort, maybe you could even watch the sunset here.
