Explore Dorset’s Jurassic Coast in Comfort and Style
What could be more perfect than being sat atop one of First’s Jurassic Coaster buses on a sunny day and sampling one of England’s most stunning vistas, Dorset’s Jurassic Coastline. From Weymouth town centre, Jurassic Coaster service X53 meanders past Chesil Beach to Abbotsbury, home of the Swannery, which contains over 600 of these majestic birds, and also the Sub-tropical Gardens.
After continuing past Swyre, the buses stop at Burton Bradstock, the stop for a stroll along the spectacular shingle beach with the iconic sandstone cliffs, immortalised by the ITV television drama Broadchurch. If you want to visit fictional Broadchurch, really West Bay, then continue to the next stop. You may like to try a Broadchurch-themed guided walk, or a boat trip round the bay to see this oh-so-famous spot.
Bridport is the next stop along the route, and this charming town is famous for rope and net making, as well as for its fabulous Hat Festival, which is on 1st September this year. Golden Cap is the highest point along the south coast and is well worth a visit. Get off the bus at Chideock and follow the marked path for breath-taking scenery. And don’t forget to take a map!
The final two stops on Jurassic Coaster service X53 are Lyme Regis, loved by fossil hunters and Jane Austen fans, and Axminster, where the route finishes. There is so much to see and do – you won’t be able to do it all in one day. Why not pick up one of the Jurassic Coaster leaflets and plan your days out? It is available in all tourist hot-spots throughout the area.
