West Bay is referred to as the Golden Gateway to the Jurassic Coast, an idyllic harbour town on the English Channel Coast in Dorset.

Its iconic and dramatic sandstone cliffs are instantly recognisable from the popular TV show, Broadchurch. The harbour is the beating heart of the town, with fishing boats and commercial vessels docking by the East Pier. It’s a great place to stroll along and enjoy the fresh sea breeze.

Visit the National Trust’s Golden Cap, the only natural World Heritage Site, and enjoy dramatic cliffs and spectacular scenery. Head to nearby Bridport, a lively market town with activities including markets, stalls, amusements arcades, play areas and more.
