Enjoy the stunning coast and visit Lyme Regis, Durdle Door or Porlock Wier on a scenic day trip from Bath.
Bath is well connected to some of England’s most iconic coastline. Take a day tour to visit to escape from Bath and relax on the beach, or walk a short section of the South West Coast Path. The car drive to the coast will allow you time to enjoy the rolling hills of Somerset and you could stop off at Glastonbury or a country house on the way.
One of Mike’s favourite day tours from Bath is to visit the north coast of Somerset. Take in the raw beauty of Exmoor, visit beautiful Dunster with its striking castle and quaint shops. A short car trip away is the picture postcard coastal village of Porlock Weir, the perfect place for lunch.
If you’re looking to visit some of the most unique coastal features in the country then a private tour to the dramatic arch at Durdle Door, and picturesque Lulworth Cove next door are a must. And there’s plenty of nearby destinations nearby; imposing Corfe Castle, bustling Weymouth or the long, pebble expanse of Chesil Beach.
If you’re looking to take in some truly ancient history on your tour then why not go fossil hunting in Lyme Regis? This quaint little town was used in the filming of the French Lieutenants Woman. This stretch of the Devon and Dorset coast is dotted with small secluded beaches from Dawlish to Burton Bradstock all of which would make a great addition to your day trip.
All of these destinations are best enjoyed as part of a full day tour from Bath, leaving time for the scenic drive and everything the coastline has to offer. All of our private car tours are tailor made, so get in touch with Mike to plan the perfect tour itinerary for you.
