This time of year is one of the best times to visit the Jurassic Coast and explore the various coastal walks that can be found there. The landscape takes on a whole different atmosphere in the winter, giving it an almost mystical feel. If you fancy seeing a new side to the Jurassic Coast, try out some of these popular walks.

Undercliff to Axmouth

This walk in Lyme Regis is part of the South West Coast Path and is one of the most popular in the region. It offers stunning views in both the summer and the winter.

This 7 mile walk takes you through the Undercliffs National Nature Reserve. Follow the signs from the western end of the Holmbush car park in Lyme Regis to reach this section of the path, but be aware that once you have entered the Undercliff, there are no paths leading inland, so make sure you allow plenty of time and wear sensible clothing.

West Bay to Eype Beach

This is a fairly easy walk and the circular route is only around 3 miles. It has some incredible cliff top views and if you’re lucky, you might find a fossil or two on the secluded beach section.

At West Bay, pick up the South West Coast Path at Monarch’s Way and follow it towards Bridport. Before you reach Bridport, turn west towards Watton and then south to Lower Eype village.

Old Harry Rocks walk

Another circular walk that is good all year round is from the National Trust car park up to Old Harry Rocks. The walk is dog friendly and has some lovely views across the coast. Start off in the car park and follow signs to Old Harry, at this time of year, the route is quieter so you can take your time and really enjoy the views.
