“Breathtaking.......................”
Review of Old Harry Rocks

Old Harry Rocks
Ranked #2 of 37 things to do in Swanage
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 15 September 2013

Just one word describes this........... BRILLIANT.
You just have to go and see for yourself. You can park at Studland South Beach car park, which is National Trust, as is the venue. Members park free but if not there is a charge. I'm a member so don't know the price. The whole walk is around 3 miles and is not difficult. In parts you have a view on both sides..of Poole/Bournemouth on one side and Swanage on the other..that's apart from the stunning cliff scenery en route.

My fiance and I decided to walk up Old Harry Rocks from the beach up the massive hill. We'd walked upwards of 10 miles the day before - something we can safely say that we're not really used to! The effort to walk up the hill (and knowing we'd have to walk down again!) probably took most of the enjoyment out of the experience of getting to the top and seeing the beautiful sights of the rocks, although the view from halfway up the hill was amazing. For anyone who would like the full enjoyment of the rocks, park at Studland and walk from there!

We took a round trip from Poole going down to Swanage where we got off to spend some 2 hours there catching another boat that would take us further down along Old Harry Rocks to Dancing Ledge. On a nice day it is definitely worth going, the coast is picturesque, Old Harry Rocks photogenic particularly from the sea. Definitely worth seeing.
