About Walking in Dorset

Over half the county is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, while three-quarters of its coastline is a World Heritage Site.

Here the discerning walker is spoilt for choice with broad, elevated chalk downs, steep limestone ridges, and low-lying wooded valleys while the noted Jurassic Coast offers such delights as the Isle of Portland, Chesil Beach, and the sweeping cliffs of Lyme Bay. Dorset is a county of contrasts, offering the very best of countryside and coastline.
