The Jurassic Coast

The 96-mile of coastline stretching from Exmouth in East Devon to Studland Bay in Dorset is Britain’s first natural World Heritage site. Spanning 185 million years of geological history, the rock formations constantly crumble to reveal new fossils. These fossils provide scientists with evidence of how plants and animals evolved during the Mesozoic Era, approximately 250 to 65 million years ago. 

The Jurassic Coast also has a lot to offer landscape lovers. The coastline has sweeping beaches, sheltered coves, dramatic cliffs and blustery headlands galore. So whether you’re looking for panoramic views of the sea, rugged footpaths or pastoral tranquillity, there is something here for you.
