The Jurassic Coast is a stretch of coast in south-west England from Emouth in the West to Swanage in the East and is 95 miles long (153 km). Its entire length can be walked on the South West Coast Path.

The name Jurassic Coast comes from the best known of the geological periods found within it, but in fact the Site includes rocks from the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous periods. The different rocks tell a fascinating story from ancient deserts to tropical seas throughout the Mesozoic era, between 250 million and 65 million years ago.
