ABOUT THE

AREA

WESTBAY

DORSET

Whether you’re into historic ships, ferocious dinosaurs, delectable seafood or lazing on the beach – West Bay really does have it all! Where the rivers Brit and Asker reach the sea is the jewel in Bridports crown. The timeless harbour attracts visitors from all over the world and the locals are lucky enough to call it home. The Jurassic World Heritage Coast is one of nature’s most marvellous sights. Punctuated by picturesque villages and towns, exploring it is nothing but a joy. West Bay is one of the most spectacular points from which to view and discover the Jurassic Coast. The golden cliffs to the east lead on to Chesil Beach and Portland Bill. Head west to the great sweep of Lyme Bay with views of Golden Cap, Lyme Regis, Beer Head and beyond. The Dorset historic market town of Bridport lies one and a half miles inland from the West Bay coast. As you would expect, the seafood here is second to none. Served up in the local pubs and restaurants there isn’t anything fresher. West Bay caters to every kind of person, so whether you prefer fish ‘n’ chips on the pier or a slap-up lobster dinner, you’ll certainly find what you’re looking for. This area is a fantastic tourism spot and with the beautiful scenery drawing attention of various TV shows over the years, the most recent ITVs ‘Broadchurch’ starring David Tenant, the visitor count just keeps going up.
