Mediterranean marvels in Dorset
The Med is a diverse region of rugged coasts, stunning forests and clear blue seas. Dorset’s landscapes and seascapes are just as unique. Explore a prehistoric coastline that holds as much history as the shorelines of Greece, unique cliff lines that resemble the Mediterranean wilds, and Spanish-style sandy beaches in Dorset. Hunt fossils on the stony shores between Charmouth and Lyme Regis, where dinosaur fossils are scattered across the beaches. Admire the magnificent rock formations of Durdle Door, Lulworth Cove and Old Harry Rocks, and stroll through the fossilised forest for a stunning view of Stair Hole. Dine al-fresco on golden beaches next to shimmering waters, or discover one of the county’s many events and festivals that celebrate its heritage under the summer sun, like the Buckham Fair, which includes a renowned horse and dog show. This is your world away, in Dorset.
