See & Do

A short journey by car or bus will get you to the village of Worth Matravers and the Keates Quarry dinosaur trackway. Spectacular to both young and old alike, the location exhibits stunning dinosaur footprints – evidence of the frenetic activities of Jurassic sauropods. These 140-million-year-old footprints have of course long since dried up, and are preserved in limestone – hundreds of instances of prints in what were the ancient tidal lagoons.

fore ye go: The famous public house, the Square and Compass is a popular watering hole in Worth Matravers, once your own feet are as tired as those of the dinosaurs.
