We are delighted that so many Purbeck festival goers stay in our lovely part of the world for a few extra days and this year we have made sure they can join us to explore further afield. The local Team have put on some stunning walks and as we know some visyors are still not au fait with the Exercise Anywhere portal used by most of our groups across the UK, we have made these Explorer WALX* which do not require a FREEDOM passport
This also means that your friends and Family are welcome to join us too – with or without poles
Here’s a list of what we have on offer for you:-
Monday 16th 11:00 – 10 Bridge Walk followed by lunch at Parterre Perfumery
Walk over some of the most beautiful Bridges that cross the River Stour before a visit to an artisan Perfumery for lunch
Monday 16th 10.00 – 2.00 A Circuit of Portland Bill
You’ve walked the Isle of Purbeck, maybe Brownsea Island too. Now it’s time to walk the Isle of Portland, or Portland Bill as it is also called.
Tuesday 17th 13:30 – Poundbury to Maiden Castle – Dorchester
Visit the Roman County town of Dorchester including the unique new ‘Village’ of Poundbury the project of HMRH Price Charles before heading to the ancient and fascinating Maiden Castle
Wednesday 18th 11:00 – Cerne Abbas Giant Footsteps
No trip to Dorset is complete without a visit to see our saucy Giant! Carved into the chalk hill above an idyllic Village this ancient symbol of fertility is known for his sheer size and a walk to see him up close as well as from afar is spectacular.
Tuesday 17th – 19:00 – Sandbanks Evening Walk
A touch of Glamour – join us to stroll the most expensive real estate in the UK – stunning beaches on a peninsula populated by the rich and famous. Got to be done Darling!
