Overview

Dorset, located on the English Channel Coast, is recognised as having one of Britain's most beautiful shorelines.

The county is home to iconic landforms such as Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door, and thus serves as an excellent destination for a Geography or Geology trip.  The UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Jurassic Coast provides 185 million years of history, meaning your students will have access to an extensive range of geographical topics, including coastal erosion, flood defences and conservation, to name a few.
