If you are planning to drive to the Jurassic Coast - especially during the main holiday periods - please use Park & Ride facilities wherever possible and avoid the hassle of finding a car parking space in the height of the summer!
Please check all public transport information with Traveline before travelling.
If you plan to visit the Jurassic Coast by car, it is a good idea to familiarise yourself with the best routes available in advance of setting out, as the roads (especially during peak holiday times) do get busy.
A new book that takes a quirky look at the Jurassic Coast has been published in time for Christmas – and it’s already proving to be a big hit. The Jurassic Coast – A Mighty Tale is published by The Jurassic Coast Trust and is written and illustrated by local artist Tim Britton.
