A Jurassic Coast Road Trip in England; Steve McKenna; Flight Centre Travel Blog


UK – Dorset and East Devon Coast

Don’t be fooled by the distance. This stunning stretch of coastline, England’s only natural UNESCO World Heritage site, crams so much in – and boasts so many inland temptations – that you could easily spend five days enjoying it, whether it’s behind the wheel, on foot or in the water. Rimming most of Dorset, and dipping into neighbouring East Devon, the Jurassic Coast takes you on a geological journey through time. Its rocks cover 185 million years of the dinosaur-dominated Mesozoic era. Fossil hunters will be in their element, but so, too, will foodies, historians, hikers, artists and literary lovers.

Distance:

Officially 153 kilometres (about 250km with diversions).

Highlights:

– Scenic walks on the South West Coast Path, a route spanning 1014km of southern England

– Sampling delicious seasonal produce at some of the country’s best delis and gastropubs
