Welcome to The Jurassic Coast

Gaining World Heritage Site status in 2001, the Jurassic Coast stretching through East Devon and Dorset is a hugely diverse and beautiful landscape with global importance.

The coastline’s cliffs and rock formations show a collective history spanning more nearly 200 million years; rocks that offer an almost complete record of the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous periods are spread out along the Jurassic Coast.

Its unique geology makes for a beautifully varied landscape that lets visitors understand the profound geological changes that occur over millions of years. For families keen to learn more, the Seaton Jurassic Visitor Centre proves a great day out, though this stretch of coast can also be enjoyed walking along East Devon’s beaches and stretches of the South West Coast Path.
