Co będziecie robić

This is a gentle 3 hour walk from Swanage to Studland that includes some stunning and close-up views of Old Harry Rocks and Studland Bay. There are many wonderful opportunities for taking photographs, learning about the history and geology of the area, and for spotting wildlife.

I will teach you all about how this amazing coastline has formed, how it has inspired many artists and authors and share stories of ancient sea battles, smugglers and shipwrecks.

We start on Swanage seafront. The first part of the walk takes us along the beach, before starting a gentle climb up onto the hills that overlook the bay. Once at the top we can rest and enjoy the 360 degree panoramic views, with our eventual destination now visible in the distance.

The route follows the crest of the hill before descending towards the chalk cliffs, arches and stacks of Old Harry Rocks. These are world famous features and I can show you how to safely get up close to them and understand how they have been formed.

From here it is a flat walk all the way to Studland Bay via secret WW2 bunkers, finishing at the cafe at Middle Beach; a great place to have lunch and spend the afternoon swimming or exploring the nature reserve.

It is a 10 minute walk from the cafe to the bus stop where you can return to the starting point by taking the half-hourly bus service back to Swanage (a 20 minute ride).

Julia and Barry are such wonderful and exemplary individuals, they really made our day a treasured memory. We enjoyed a lovely private tour through Dulston Head Country Park, with Barry personally tailoring the pathway to accommodate our accessibility needs. They very kindly advised us to contact the nearby visitor centre in regards to hiring an off-road mobility scooter, and provided us with all the weblinks and contact numbers, straight into our private messages, all well in advance. The tour itself was fascinating, and even for a group of 3, Barry was able to offer something appealing to each of us. I'm sure his brain was a prototype for the Internet, sharing facts on Architectural history, and the development of Swanage as a livable area, identifying wild flora and fauna right there around us, and even a little literature and poetry relevant to the famous coast! Truly a wonderful combination of his social expertise and encyclopaedic knowledge. Both Julia and Barry are very kind and considerate guides, we were in such safe hands. I would highly recommend this experience for everyone and anyone, a very lovely adventure.

This walk along the Jurassic coast was a truly unique and fun experience! The views alone made this walk pretty amazing, but Barry's knowledge & stories added the wow factor...I mean, how many hosts do you know that can do an acid test, on the spot?? We loved it and can recommend it.

This was our first visit to Devon and we wanted to start hiking with an experienced guide. Our 2 daughters (12 and 17 year olds) really enjoyed the tour with Barry. He has been very friendly and knowledgeable.
