Day Trip in Dorset

There’s so much to see in Dorset, why not get the most out of your visit and take a day trip to discover the county’s rich natural beauty and heritage?

And what better way to explore than by taking advantage of the many tour packages and day trips on offer…

Savour the splendour of Dorset on two wheels

The Jurassic Cycle Trails are safe, flat, family friendly and fun and make for a great day trip out.

There is a choice of 3 trails; the Lodmoor Trail, the Weymouth Trail or the Portland Trail (all round trips) with plenty of attractions and activities to enjoy along the routes including Sand World and the Sea Life Centre.

With Jurassic Cycle Trails, it is also possible to combine your cycle hire with another activity such as sea kayaking, stand up paddleboarding or windsurfing – now that’s a day trip to remember!
