Bridport and West Bay Day Trip
Bridport is a market town in Dorset, England, situated approximately 1.5 miles (2.4 km) inland from the English Channel near the confluence of the small River Brit and its tributary the Asker. Its origins are Saxon and it has a long history as a rope-making centre, though many of its buildings date from the 18th century.
A really wonderful place to spend the day. Its streets are full of galleries, booksellers, cafes, antique shops and boutiques. On Saturdays there is a street market with stalls selling everything from local food to antique ironmongery.
With the simmering golden glow of the majestic sandstone cliffs and the shimmering radiance of Golden Cap, West Bay is the Golden gateway to the Jurassic Coast. West Bay nestles south of Bridport, between Eype with Seatown to the West and Freshwater with Burton Bradstock to the east. Situated at The Western End of Chesil Beach / Chesil Bank the area forms part of the Dorset Jurassic Coast World Heritage Side within Lyme Bay. A must see for fans of the ITV series Broadchurch which was filmed at West Bay. Visit and see the famous cliff and ‘Broadchurch Police Station’ as well as other sites that you may recognise from the hit TV Series.
