Durlston Country Park

Covering over 260 acres of land ,and consisting of sea-cliffs,with breeding seabirds,Herring gull, Kittiwake and Guillemot with a small number of Razorbill. Coastal limestone downland, haymeadows, hedgerows and woodland complete the picture.Durlston Country Park lies on the coast south of Swanage. Dorset County Council established the Park in the 1970s and since then the careful management, combined with its geography, geology and history, has made Durlston an important part of the World Heritage Coast. At times of migration sea watching and falls of migrants can be particularly exciting with many rarities recorded.
The Park is open all year round and the Visitor Centre is open daily from (April - October) from 10am - 5pm, then from November to March weekends and school holidays only 10.30am - 4pm.Durlston Country Park web site also has a daily news update.Click here for further information about the park
