National Trust Old Harry Rocks

If you need the perfect excuse to visit a place named ‘Studland’ then this is it. A medium difficulty walk that will take you out to the banks of Jurassic Coast and back again.

This walk consists of a fairly gentle 3.7 miles stretch. It captures Old Harry Rocks as well as the vast ocean views over neighbouring towns.

Old Harry Rocks are one of the most famous landmarks along the Jurassic Coast. The stroll from the car park is flat and but if the rest of it does involve a slight incline, the reward at the top is worth it.

The views over the Purbeck Countryside is stunning and the Dorset coastline never fails to impress.
