Portland - Coastal Walk (half day)

Depart for the drive to stunning Durdle Door in Dorset, with its massive rock arch, set right on the Jurassic Coast. There is a sloping beach for bathing, caves and exciting rock strata. Green fields, rugged chalk cliffs and pebble beaches dominate this stretch of the Dorset Coast Path.

The natural arch of Durdle Door is a physical feature of the area which has retained its name for more than a 1000 years, showing that the coast does not change very rapidly. The name is derived from an Old English word "thirl", meaning to pierce (as in "nostril"). The main feature of this is the natural arch, known as the "Barn-door", formed in Purbeck Limestone and sufficiently high for a good-sized sailing boat to pass through.

After seeing Durdle Door enjoy a walk with your guide along the coastal path to Lulworth Cove, or for those who wish to take the less energetic option, re-board your coach for the short transfer.

With its thatched cottages, fishing boats, lobster pots, wild flowers, quaint little gift shops and tea rooms - the charm of Lulworth Cove is timeless. Enjoy morning refreshments before returning to Portland.
