Jurassic Coast, England, An Epic Roadtrip

Did you know that the Jurassic Coasts is one of the best road trips you can go on.

This 95-mile stretch of coastline boasts 185 million years of history, the Jurassic Coast is justifiably one of the most famous places in southern England. It’s also an epic location for a road trip, with idyllic beaches, rugged cliffs, cute seaside towns, and fossils galore!

Starting from Bournemouth, take the chain ferry across Poole Harbour to Studland to visit Old Harry Rocks.

These chalk stacks off the Isle of Purbeck mark the easternmost point of the Jurassic Coast. From there, drive along the coast to Lulworth Cove. Visit the picturesque beach there, then walk over the cliffs to the Durdle Door.

Next, visit the seaside towns of Weymouth – with its colourful fishing harbour – and Lyme Regis, home of Victorian fossil collector Mary Anning. Finally, make your way into Devon to visit the white chalk cliffs at Beer, before passing a few more quaint beach towns on your way to Exmouth.

ROUTE: Bournemouth – Studland – Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door – West Bay – Lyme Regis – Beer – Exmouth
