Attractions Jurassic Coast


Branscombe Village

Historical village on the coast of Devon

The historic village on the coast of  Devon has little more than 500 inhabitants who today depend on tourism rather than fishing. Branscombe Village stretches across a valley that opens out onto the shore. It has a pebble-covered beach and the steep cliffs of the Jurrasic Coast rise to the east and west. On a nice day one can enjoy extensive walks on the West Coast Path.

Corfe Castle

Caslte of the Crown Jewels on the Isle of Purbeck

These castle ruins overlooking the village of Corfe are located in the hills of the Isle of Purbeck, which is a peninsula seven kilometers southeast of Wareham. Following the murder of Edward the Martyr in Corfe in the year 978, the town was periodically looted by the Vikings. In response, the Normans built a castle here in 1090, which housed the Crown Jewels for a time. Corfe Castle was not destroyed until 1646 during the English Civil War. The beautiful surrounding countryside makes this a great place for photographers.
