The Jurassic Coast Road forms a tourist route between Weymouth and Bridport. It provides a coastal alternative to the signed A354-A35 primary route, using the B3157, between the two towns.

looking out over Chesil Beach

The road follows the Jurassic Coast, a World Heritage Site. This is mostly Chesil beach. The road doesn't hug the coast, but instead runs in the hills (themselves part of Dorset AONB) above it, giving spectacular views.
