Exploring the beauty of the Jurassic coastline

Covering nearly 100 miles of coastline from West Dorset to East Devon is the Jurassic Coast, which is known as such because it has around 185 million years of history buried beneath the surface. This area gained world heritage status because it offers such a fascinating insight into history and has a great deal of geological importance.

This part of England is very accessible and many people come here every year to go fossil hunting. This is not the only reason to visit the area however, and any tourist will be blown away by the incredible natural beauty of the place. It is not just natural beauty that is particularly remarkable here, but there is also a great deal of man-made beauty. Thatched cottages are particularly known in this part of the country, and some of these are incredibly picturesque.

This is a part of the country that becomes incredibly busy during the school holidays, so if you are not travelling with children, it can be a great idea to visit at another time when it is enjoyably calm. Arriving in this part of the country can easily be done by either car or public transport. It can be reached from London in about three hours, and if you are staying in Bristol, it can be done in just 90 minutes.

The Jurassic Coast is also a fantastic opportunity for doing some walking. With the incredible amount of natural beauty, it is hardly surprising that many people come here to get back to nature and enjoy some of the beautiful scenery. There are also many great pubs in the area, so once you have enjoyed a days walking, it is easy to find a place to sit down, relax, and enjoy a nice beer from a local brewery.
