This is a one-day event, although many people will make the most of the weekend and perhaps travel down on Friday night.
Note; The Adventure Geek team will be arriving on Friday evening and will leave on Sunday afternoon.
Saturday is a 10-mile walk starting from the seaside town of Swanage, working our way up to old Harry Rocks, along a beach, and finally end up in the majestic ruin of Corfe Castle (which we can visit later in the day).
We stroll along Allwood Down and Nine Barrow Down, enjoying fantastic views over Poole Harbour on the east and the Purbecks on the west.
We walk by Studland Hill and Ballard Point before making our way to the dramatic and most easterly point of the Jurassic Coast – Old Harry Rocks. If you are brave enough then take the thin path to the edge of one of the chalk formations.
STEAM TRAIN BACK TO SWANAGE
Once we have grabbed an ice-cream, or a glass of wine (or both!) and spent some time in Corfe we can enjoy the short journey back to Swanage via the vintage steam train.
