One of the Jurassic Coast's most famous sights, attracting visitors from across the world, is Golden Cap.

Golden Cap is a hill and cliff situated between Bridport and Charmouth.

The cliffs - at 626ft (191m) - are the highest points on the south coast of Great Britain and the hill is owned by the National Trust and forms part of the Jurassic Coast, a World Heritage Site.

The name derives from the distinctive outcropping of golden Greensand rock present at the very top of the cliff.

The hill is visible for tens of miles in each direction along the coastline and there is a coast-path leading up from Seatown, and for those fit enough to try it, takes about 30 to 40 minutes to get to the top.

The base of the cliff is shrouded by various large boulders, which are frequented by fossil collectors and tourists alike. Following a storm, thousands of fossilised Ammonites and Belemnites are visible in the Blue Lias base.

The base of the cliff is accessible through Chideock Beach (Seatown) or Charmouth.

Extreme caution must be taken when visiting the base of Golden Cap, as the tide completely envelops the beach below the cliff.

Directly behind the cliff is a small wood of (mainly) Corsican Pine known as Langdon Wood, planted in the 1950s and originating from a copse of trees known as "Eleanor's Clump".

Langdon is also owned by the National Trust and has a car park and a circular walk around the wood of almost exactly one-mile.
