The hard banks of limestone form headlands while softer clays have been eroded into bays. Boat trips offer a fabulous view of the 80 million year old chalk stacks of Old Harry Rocks, the most easterly end of the Jurassic Coast. At Ballard Down the chalk ridge appears and the almost vertical layers of the chalk can only be seen from the sea. At one time, the ridge ran right across to the needles on the Isle of Wight

There is a Heritage Centre at Swanage and boat trips are available to Poole Harbour
