This abandoned quarry is a fantastic little place to explore with its strangely-shaped rock crags and echoing cave tunnels – you won’t be surprised that Dr. Who episodes were once filmed here.

A pleasant walk down from the village of Worth Matravers, it’s a good family day out but take water (the walk back up the hill may be more challenging for little legs) and there are sheer cliff edges, so dogs on leads is a must.
