Isle of Portland LONG Weekend Trip

15th - 17th March (end 8th week)

Accompany James Welch, Richard Campbell and Selena McGuinness in a jolly, great-value LONG trip of three full days of walking that will allow you to wind down after the end of term. The destination is the unique and rugged Isle of Portland, a 7 km tilted table of limestone off the south coast of Dorset, which is connected to the mainland by a 29 km sand spit called Chesil Beach. The Jurassic Coast of south Dorset also offers outstanding walks in abundance. Close to Lulworth Cove, which is a beautiful horseshoe-shaped harbour, is one of the wonders of the British coastline, Durdle Door, a stunning tall natural rock arch that has been excavated by wave erosion. West of Lyme Bay is the Undercliff National Nature Reserve, where there was a famous landslip in 1840 when 20 acres of land crashed towards the sea, now home to woodpeckers and orchids.
