Corfe Castle, Jurassic Coast and the Old Harry Rocks - Hike and day out
Time & Location
About the Event
Distance: 15 kilometres/ 9.5 miles
Total ascent: 270 metres
Breathtaking views of the start of the Jurassic coast with its unique rock formations, and views of Corfe Castle await you on this circular walk.
Corfe Castle ruins are one of Britain's most iconic and evocative survivors of the English Civil War, partially demolished in 1646 by the Parliamentarians, they sit proudly upon a hill of this beautiful historical village with the same name.
Old Harry Rocks is a spectacular cliff formation and one of the best places to visit on the Jurassic Coast. This is the very eastern end of the Jurassic Coast and the white chalk rocks gleam brightly in the sun.
Thousands of years ago, Old Harry Rocks and the Needles on the Isle of Wight were linked by a line of chalk hills that eroded away. What's left is a series of impressive rock stacks and cliffs.
We will travel in a private minibus.
The bus ride takes around 3 hours each way with one stop at a service station. This is if traffic allows. If the day is particularly warm there could be traffic.
