Catch the double decker Jurassic Coaster bus and enjoy what the Daily Telegraph described as ‘one of the greatest British journeys’. We couldn’t agree more. The section between Bridport and Abbotsbury is particularly worthy of mention because of the fabulous views, with the bus hugging the sea before heaving itself up to the dramatic viewpoint overlooking Chesil Beach and the Fleet Lagoon, with St Catherine’s chapel evocatively perched on a steep grassy slope in the distance.

Along other sections, you’ll get views over high hedgerows which you would never see from a car and as you pass through some of Britain’s prettiest villages, squeezing around impossibly tight corners, you’ll be able to admire the gorgeous local stone which makes every town and village along this coast so unique.
