Please contact Dorset Wildlife Trust for details of all activities at the Visitors Centre.

Information on all events is available from the Chesil Beach Visitors Centre, open 10am-4pm. 01305 760579

The Centre is located at NGR SY668755 on the car park south of Ferrybridge. For GPS users the postcode is DT4 9XE.

Where postcodes are given for a location they are provided to assist GPS users and should be used only as a guide to a location. The NGR is often a more accurate location.

Please note that all events are subject to change. Please contact the Visitors Centre beforehand to ensure the event is still as planned. On the day, the event may be cancelled due to inclement weather or insufficient attendance.

Please note the following before participating in our events:

Children under 15 MUST be accompanied by an adult. Dogs are welcome at the guides discretion, but must be kept under control and on a leash.

Wear appropriate clothing. All our events are on the coast so cool sea winds can make even warm days seem cold. Wear suitable footwear for walking on rough terrain. Wellies are strongly advised for the fossil walks. On low tide walks you will get your feet wet, so again wear suitable footwear.

Most walks last 1 to 2 hours and are 1-3 miles in distance.

Unless shown otherwise, the cost for the walks will be children £2, adults £3.



Why not enjoy a trip on the glass bottom boat, the Fleet Observer. It sails from Easter until the end of October. Trips start and end at Ferrybridge. For further information ring the Centre on 01305 759692 or click here. Download leaflet here
