About
Discover some of the most scenic coastline in southern England on a coach trip from Bournemouth. Travel to the famous Jurassic Coast, via Poole Harbour and Sandbanks, to experience the nation's first natural UNESCO World Heritage Site.  Visit both Lulworth Cove and the natural limestone arch of Durdle Door for 3 hours at your own pace but with plenty of information and maps to help you along the way. Have a cream tea or fish and chips in one of the many tearooms, cafes or pubs in the village of West Lulworth. The departure point in Bournemouth has great connections with trains and coaches making this a great day trip from London and the South East.  Not just for the summer! This trip runs all year and provides an amazing day out, even in the depths of winter, just be sure to wrap up warm and look forward to a hot drink in one of the cosy pubs or cafes once you have blown the cobwebs out.

Wow!!
Wow… this place was amazing!! Our tour guide Paul was friendly and very knowledgable. He told us where to go and took us to the top of Durdle Door so we didn’t have to trek up that steep hill from Lulworth Cove! The views were incredible, the hill coming up from Durdle Door is very steep and hard going however, just take your time. The time spent exploring was perfect, more than enough time to spend in each area and take in all the views. Definitely recommend this tour!!

Lovely trip, with a funny friendly guide
Sep 2021 • Friends
Jerry was a wonderfully funny guide who picked us up from Poole on time. Bus was small and ac didn't quite work which in 29 degree heat was a bit tough. Also as we were sitting in the back it was hard to hear commentary all the time.
But the tour was really nice, it's a great affordable taster of the Jurassic coast with ample time to dip into Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove. If weather is good def bring a bathing suit for Durdle Door as it is so scenic and the water crystal clear. But between the carkpark and beach you need to trek a bit. Jerry dropped us halfway through the hike but on way back you got to do it all so definitely need good sturdy hiking shoes because it's quite a walk/climb to get to both points. Bring bottles of water too to stay hydrated.
Jerry was also nice enough to our bnb in Lychett, as it was on the way back to Poole/Bournemouth, which was such a nice thing to do given how tired we were. That was a nice finishing touch to a lovely half day out.

Great service
Sep 2021 • Couples
Great service and drive to and from durdle door. Great that they show you the best way to do the walk, durdle door first and walking over to Lulworth cove - a lift is an option if not up to the walk. Had a brilliant day out, highly recommend it

Great experiemce but...
The trip itself was great, but the transportation van was old and needed maintenance. Very uncomfortable and bumps were extreme. Not much room between the seats.

What an amazing experience! I will never forget this breathtaking view of Jurassic Coast! It was the highlight moment of our Bournemouth trip. I wished that the tour was a bit longer than it was. 3 hours weren't enough to enjoy the beach and have a pint at the end. But we are happy about it though. Highly recommend.
