Kimmeridge Town Information

Use the links on the left to find information and images for the towns and villages throughout Dorset...

This is a seaside resort with a difference because while its shallow water is ideal for paddling and rock pooling the coastal village has slowly become an important hotspot for divers, snorkellers and underwater cameramen. Lying in the Isle of Purbeck, it is set amidst cliffs made of sedimentary rock and enjoys an exceptionally long low tide. The local rocks are peppered with fossils, though many visitors are far more interested in what lives beneath the waves.
