Lulworth Castle, built in the early 17th Century as a hunting lodge, became a country house at the heart of a large estate. Thomas Howard, 3rd Lord Bindon, built the Castle in order to entertain hunting parties for the King and Court. The Howards owned it until 1641 when it was purchased by Humphrey Weld, the direct ancestor of the present owners. Gutted by fire in 1929.

Stop At: Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door, West Lulworth England

Durdle Door

Durdle Door is a natural arch cut into the Portland Stone (Limestone) found on the south coast of England in the county of Dorset. The rocks that the arch is made up of is thought to be approximately 140 million years old. Originally the arch would have been a series of caves along the coast, made from cracks in the layers of rock that have been hollowed out. It first appeared on the first edition of the Ordnance Survey map, dated 1811, spelt Dirdale Door.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door, West Lulworth England

Stop At: Weymouth Beach, Weymouth England

Weymouth & Portland

On to the 'isle' of Portland, located on the World Heritage Coast, is an explorer's Island with curiosities of history and folklore just waiting to be discovered. We look west over the 18miles of Chesil beach and the southernmost tip of the Jurassic Coast. With its 3 castles and 3 lighthouses, this little island packs a punch!

Duration: 1 hour

Pass By: South West Coast Path - Abbotsbury Castle, Abbotsbury Buller's Way Car Park, Abbotsbury, Weymouth DT3 4LA England

Abbotsbury

The picturesque village of Abbotsbury steeped in history, yet a village where the present is very much alive and the future perpetually evolving. There’s much more than first meets the eye when you visit Abbotsbury, it was once home to a richly endowed abbey, founded in 1044. The remains are still visible and date from the 13th and 14th centuries.

Stop At: St Catherine's Chapel, Grove Lane, Abbotsbury, Weymouth DT3 4JH England

St Catherine’s Mount

High on Abbotsbury hilltop sits St Catherine’s Chapel, a barrel-vaulted 14th century chapel built by the monks of Abbotsbury Abbey as a place of pilgrimage and retreat. We take in the fantastic views of the abbey ruins and the 22 mile look back over Chesil Beach and the Fleet.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: West Bay Harbour, West Bay, Bridport England

Broadchurch & Westbay

Then we visit the famous town where Broadchurch was filmed! On our way to Westbay in the Market town of Bridport. The golden strata of nearby East Cliff are one of the most distinctive features of the Jurassic Coast, and the area is very popular with walkers. East Beach has been designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest, and forms one end of Chesil Beach, which extends 18 miles south east to the Isle of Portland. The cliffs here are very unstable, so it’s important to keep well clear of the cliff edges and bases.
