A moderate 3.8 mile stroll along the South West Coast Path around the much-photographed chalk stacks rising spectacularly from the clear water off The Foreland at Studland. The same sea that carved the soft rock into caves and arches also polished the vertical cliffs to a dazzling white. There are far-ranging views over Swanage in one direction and Wareham and Bournemouth in the other. There are some long but gentle climbs and descents.

A very sad and eye opening visit. Came on a wet Sunday afternoon and it was quiet and easy to find. Very saddened by the story of Tyneham but worth a visit nevertheless. A few information boards up but could have preferred more! School exhibition...More

Tyneham has a rather melancholy feel. The empty buildings with their fascinating social histories of their previous residents make for sad reading. You can imagine the hope that their village would be returned to them, and then the growing realisation that this was never going...More

Very interesting place, take a walk on the woodland path too and it takes you to the beautiful cove. About 20 min walk. Only down side is they seem to have removed the toilet facility as no one could find them.
