Daytrip to Dorset

Jump to last reply

I am travelling to UK for the first time and planning a daytrip in Dorset area from London. I am travelling alone by public transport and as my budget is limited in terms of both time and money, I would like to do the difficult job of maximizing travel time and minimizing cost. What I would love to do is to explore the coast as much as possible and visit Corfe castle. I was planning the following itinerary for the trip, and as I have no idea about UK the transportation system at all, I would like some advise if it is feasible or should be modified.

London - Bournemouth (National Express Bus) leave in early morning

Bournemouth - Studland (Bus 50: http://www.morebus.co.uk/bournemouth-and-poole.shtml)

Hike to Old Harry Rocks from Studland (1.5 hrs?)

Studland -Swanage (same bus)

Swanage - Corfe Castle (Bus 40)

Visit Corfe castle and the village (2 hrs?)

Corfe Castle - Wareham (Bus 40) (hopefully there will be a daypass type thing for all the buses)

Wareham - Wool (train)

Taxi to Durdle door (Is it costly?)

Hike to Lulworth Cove

Taxi back to Wool

Wool - London (I think the last train is at 8:40 pm)

I was thinking if I get to Bournemouth by 10 am (I think the first bus reach at 9:30) I would leave for Wool around 5:30 pm having total 7.5 hrs for the first part and 3 hrs for the Wool/Durdle door/Lulworth cove part. Is there anything really interesting nearby I can/should accommodate?
