Weymouth Adventure- Hiking at Jurassic Coast and Seafood Festival
Time & Location
About the event
Please join me for an incredible weekend in Weymouth, with scenic walks breathtaking views and a visit to the annual Dorset Seafood Festival.
Weymouth harbour is the perfect backdrop to this tasty event. With over 80 stalls, mouth-watering seafood menus, celebrity chefs, Pommery champagne, local ales and a fabulous atmosphere, the festival also raises money for The Royal National Mission to Deep Sea Fishermen.
The Dorset and East Devon Coast World Heritage Site is England's first natural World Heritage Site known as The Jurassic Coast. It covers 95 miles of truly stunning coastline from East Devon to Dorset, with rocks recording 185 million years of the Earth's history.

Meeting time-6.45pm, the journey takes about 2 hours 48 minutes.
Hike - Doordle Door/Lulworth cove
9:00 am start.
Hike distance: 10.98 miles (17.67 km) about 5-6 hours.
We'll arrive around 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm.
Parts of the walk can be strenuous, with some sharp ascents and descents so please make sure you have suitable clothing and good hiking shoes. This walk is perhaps the most beautiful on the whole of the coast path. There are some steep climbs up the chalk cliffs, but we'll be rewarded with stunning views of the World Heritage Jurassic coast, including Lulworth cove, St Oswalds Bay and Durdle Door.
The view from the top of White Nothe is excellent, with Ringstead bay below. We'll stop at Durdle door as it's far prettier than Lulworth cove, but Lulworth is only half an hour away, so you'll be able to walk over there by yourself. If you'd like to eat at the pub, there is Lulworth Inn. There aren't any shops/restaurants at Durdle Door.
Hike+ Seafood Festival
We will leave the hostel at around 09.15 / 09.30 am.
This walk is not as strenuous as the Saturday one - but there is at least one sharp climb.
We should be back in Weymouth by 1:00 pm or earlier, which will give us 2-3 hours to enjoy the seafood festival.
4:30 pm we'll start getting ready for our return trip and collect our bags from the hostel. If we get separated during the festival, I'll see you back at the hostel at 5:00 pm and we'll make our way to the station together.
Please note that unless the trip is cancelled the payments are non-refundable as the costs need to be paid in advance. However you may be able to sell your place to your friends or other group members
