Jurassic Coast weekend
Walk the most geologically diverse coastline in the world while raising funds for Girlguiding
Travel back in time to the Jurassic Coast
Stretching 95 miles between Old Harry Rocks in Dorset, to Orcombe Point in East Devon, the Jurassic Coast is the most geologically diverse coastline in the world.
Join our expedition and you will take in some of its most spectacular scenery, from the renowned natural stone archway of Durdle Door to the beautiful circular Lulworth Cove, as you climb and descend the steep hills of the Jurassic Coast.
We will camp at a lovely campsite a short distance from our route.

I would like to say having never done anything like this before, I found the whole team fantastic! They made the whole experience – which I found difficult in places – enjoyable. They made you feel we could all finish, which we did! - Penni, previous challenge participant who walked the Jurassic Coast in 2017
About the walk
The exposed cliffs allow you to look back through 185 million years of time - dinosaur remains have been found here, and it’s a fossil-hunter’s paradise. With a more recent history of mining, shipwrecks and smuggling, this is a fascinating stretch of coastline.
