Spanning 630 miles from Minehead in North Somerset to Poole Harbour in Dorset the South West Coast Path is Britain's longest footpath. As a single undertaking the challenge should not be underestimated.

This trail covers the part of the path from Weymouth seafront to the end of the trail at Poole Harbour via Durdle Door, Lulworth Cove, Purbeck, Swanage and Studland Bay. For the section from the Devon / Dorset border to Weymouth please click here. See also the South Dorset Ridgeway.
