While many people are naturally attracted to the stunning Jurassic Coast, just inland is the South Dorset Ridgeway, from where you can still enjoy sea views and crisp breezes while also exploring the ancient burial sites along the chalk downlands. The coastal bus connects the start and finish, and also links both towns to Weymouth. The Ridgeway is a ridgeway or ancient trackway described as Britain's oldest road.

The route was adapted and extended as a National Trail Designation: UK National Trail.
