The Purbeck Way passes through some of the most varied and spectacular scenery in Britain. After leaving the River Frome and its water meadows, the route continues through heathland, woodland and downland before arriving at the dramatic scenery of England’s first natural World Heritage Site, the 'Jurassic Coast'. Here the route continues along the South West Coast Path from Ballard Down to Chapman's Pool before heading north to return to Corfe Castle.


Assuming a constant pace and no stops, typically it will take 8 hours 47 minutes to walk the distance and along the way 2352 calories will be burnt.
