DAY 2

The Jurassic Coast

After breakfast, we set off by coach from our hotel to Sandbanks (where incidentally is home to the most expensive real estate in Europe). We take the short trip on the Sandbanks Ferry across the largest natural harbour in Europe, over to Middle Beach on the edge of Studland village. From here we start our main walk for the day. Our route takes us to Fort Henry, a Grade II listed observation bunker where the final D-Day meeting of the US and UK senior figures took place along with the final D-Day exercises prior to the D-Day landings. From here we can enjoy panoramic views over Studland Bay. We then continue along the southwest coastal path along the cliffs above South Beach onto Old Harry Rocks.

DAY 3

Swanage & Durlston

This morning we walk to the Bournemouth Bus Terminal and catch the No. 50 bus to the Sandbanks ferry. The route takes in lovely views over the Sandbanks peninsular and often the route is served by an open top bus.(not guaranteed). We stay on the bus while we take the ferry and alight at Swanage Bus and Railway station and meet our Walking Guide. This is where the famous Swanage Steam Railway is located, rebuilt by enthusiasts since 1972.
