Durlston County Park, Swanage, Dorset, UK.

Durlston Country Park is situated only a mile from Swanage the park covers 280 acres of parkland which is home to many different species of animals, birds and reptiles with lovely views. Walking trails with cliff-top walks which is a gateway to the Jurassic coast. With a Victorian castle which is also the visitors centre, cafe, restaurant and shop, not far from the car park, which also has picnic tables nearby which we used after a enjoyable walk on our first visit and shared with a tame robin pinching my prawns. Durlston Country Park is also home to the historic Great Globe, which really impressed me. There is just too much to say about this beautiful place I would suggest looking on their excellent website, and then spend a day at Durlston, you will not be disappointed.
