Have an egg-cellent time in Dorset this Easter! It’s a gorgeous region to explore with lovely natural landscape and heritage coast to explore. When you have finished hunting for Easter eggs, go searching for ammonite fossils along the beaches of the Jurassic Coast. Afterwards, take a break by resting upon the shore, building sandcastles or going for a paddle in the ocean. Keep an eye out for spring lambs in the countryside.
Why spend Easter in Dorset?
This spectacular region sets a stunning backdrop for those on their holidays and is even better in Spring when you’ll no doubt be outside hunting down Easter eggs. The area around West Bay appears to enjoy its own micro-climate so stay there for mild weather and a lovely beach.
Things to do at Easter in Dorset:
Spend the Easter holidays at coastal amusement parks or exploring the chalk hills, low clay valleys or wandering the Jurassic Coast. Climb the beautiful Golden Cap, where Broadchurch was filmed, or venture inland and follow the country trails that criss-cross rural Dorset.
