Dorset is the county of the Jurassic Coast as well as the towns of Weymouth, Swanage and Poole and Bournemouth. The Jurassic Coast is a geological wonder stretching along the English Channel with the infamous Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove.
Tourism is the mainstay of the Dorset economy. Visitors come here for the fantastic sandy beaches as well as the gentle countryside which surrounds the coast. In Dorset you’ll also find an array of gardens (and often the houses to go with them) as well as historic castles such as the spectacular ruins at Corfe Castle.
