Discover The Jurassic Coast United Kingdom

The Jurassic Coast, otherwise known as the Dorset and East Devon Coast World Heritage Site, is the second site in England to have been branded in its entirety with the UNESCO label. It stretches from Orcombe Point in East Devon to Old Harry Rocks in East Dorset.

Famous for its geological variation - exhibiting Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous cliffs - the 96-mile stretch from Exmouth to East Dorset has for years been a popular walking route (the South West Coast Path). The subject of numerous field studies, the coastal route is of interest to scientists and tourists alike, offering unique photo opportunities at Durdle Door's natural limestone arch, as well as on the Isle of Portland, which lies just 5 miles south of Weymouth.
