Explore the Jurassic Coast

England’s only Natural World Heritage Site

From Orcombe Point in Devon to Old Harry Rocks in Dorset, the Jurassic Coast spans 95 miles along the South Coast of England. The area was awarded 'Unesco Natural World Heritage Site' in 2001 for its outstanding fossils, rocks and landforms, but there is so much more to this coast than Geology.
