Itinerary

Day 1: Portland Bill Lighthouse

Begin your trip with a visit to Portland Bill Lighthouse. Climb the 153 steps, and you will be rewarded with breathtaking views of the Jurassic Coast. Afterwards, discover the interactive exhibition displays in the Visitor Centre as you learn about the function, history, and technology of this important landmark.

Day 2: Chesil Beach

Spend the day enjoying the fresh sea air as you walk along the Jurassic coastline at Chesil beach. Situated right at the heart of the UNESCO World Heritage Site, this shingle beach is a fantastic destination for an invigorating walk.

Day 3: Abbotsbury Swannery & Subtropical Gardens

Day 3 begins with a visit to Abbotsbury Swannery, the only place in the world where you can walk through a colony of nesting Mute Swans. Just a six-minute drive will take you to your afternoon destination, Abbotsbury Subtropical Gardens. Wander your way through, discovering rare, exotic, and unusual plants. Head to the viewpoint at the top of the Magnolia Walk to find beautiful views of the Jurassic Coast.

Day 4: Eggardon Hill

Depending on your mood, you can climb or drive up Eggardon Hill to the 2,500 year old Iron Age hill fort. From the top of the hill, take time to enjoy the panoramic views of Dorset’s sweeping countryside across the Marshwood Vale.

Day 5: Mapperton House & Gardens

What better way to spend your last day than exploring the stunning Jacobean manor and formal gardens of Mapperton. This enchanting sandstone manor house overlooks 15 acres of spectacular gardens including topiary, ponds, and an orangery.
