School Visits Dorset

Although more than half of the county of Dorset is covered by Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and boast some wonderfully picturesque chalk and limestone valleys, it is the spectacular coastline of this county that receives special attention and is where the majority of school trips flock.

The Jurassic Coast is named thanks to the erosion that has exposed rocks and fossils dating back to the Jurassic period, and beyond. UNESCO declared this part of Dorset a World Heritage site with spectacular natural features such as the migrating barrier beach known as Chesil Beach which stretches between Lyme Regis and Portland Bill, and Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door.

Coastal geomorphology processes make Dorset the perfect place for schools wanting to undertake fieldwork. We work with residential centres who can offer everything from accommodation only packages where for self led trips, to fully inclusive field trips giving your group access to specialist local knowledge. Dorset is a gem of a place and the premier location for school groups in the South West studying geography, geology and tourism. Visit the following link for our full list of visit options in the South West of England.
