Welcome to another great London away-day. You will travel through England's counties and countryside to Durdle Door. Here you will have a great time to explore the splendid rock formation that overlooks the English Channel with a beautiful, natural calcareous archway. Did you know that The Jurassic Coastline is a World Heritage Site in England? About 25 million years ago, the African tectonic plate hit the European plate causing huge pressure to build the alpine chain. A layer of hard calcareous stone, almost vertically out of the seabed, formed the Durdle Door itself. Heading to the east, we will reach the lovely beach city of Bournemouth. You will find plenty to see and do here. Bournemouth beach is the ideal location regardless of the weather or time of the year, whether it's chilling on a deckchair and walking along traditional seaside piers or a relaxing beach hut. Not only Bournemouth but also Lulworth Cove will amaze you with its natural wonder. Join us for a great day out!
About This Deal
This is a typical itinerary for this product
Stop At: Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door, West Lulworth England
Durdle Door is one of the most photographed and iconic monuments of Dorset damaged by time and nature. It is located on the southern coast of Dorset, on the Lulworth Estate and is of such international ecological importance that it is now a member of a family of natural wonders like the Grand Canyon of America and the Great Barrier Reef. In 2001, England became the UNESCO's first natural World Heritage site. The shape of the Durdle Door coastline is formed by its geological structure, by the contrasting solidity of the rocks and local fault and fold patterns. When the force of the waves eroded the rock and cut a hole through the middle, the beautiful natural calcareous arch was created. The name Durdle comes from the old word "thirl," meaning piercing, drilling or boring. This beautiful English coast offers outstanding views and cliff top walks as well as the landmark Jurassic rock formation even with some fossils. It's a lovely eco-adventure experience in this prehistoric landscape.
Duration: 2 hours
Stop At: Weymouth Harbour, Weymouth England
Our next stop is Weymouth Harbour. We can call this lovely picturesque town the Cote D'azur of South England. The harbour is home of pleasure boats and private yachts. Far to the south, the much bigger Portland Harbour houses Weymouth National Sailing Academy and Portland National Sailing Academy, which hosted the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. Weymouth Pier, which separates the port from Weymouth Beach and Weymouth Bay, is right north at the port entrance. Here you can easily note the Weymouth Pavilion and the Jurassic Skyline observation tower. On the southern side of the harbour entrance, Stone Pier is also located.
Duration: 45 minutes
Stop At: Bournemouth, Bournemouth, Dorset, England
Bournemouth is Dorset's largest resort, with seven miles of sandy beaches, beautiful parks, gardens and various stores, restaurants and resorts suitable for any budget. It is a lovely Victorian coastal resort town on the south coast of England. The area was a neglected heathland, often visited by fishing people and smugglers, before being established by Lewis Tregonwell in 1810. The city was first advertised as a health resort when it was published in the book of The Spas of England, written in Augustus Granville in 1841. Upon the arrival of the railway, the development of Bournemouth intensified and was transformed into a Victorian town in 1870. The city centre has a beautiful Gothic architecture and the lovely St Peter's Church which has a spire 202-foot (62 m) tall. With its beaches and vibrant nightlife, Bournemouth has turned into a popular tourist destination, drawing more than 5 million tourists a year.
