This is a great dog-friendly beach. Good parking but National Trust so you have to pay if you're not a member.

Part of the Jurassic Coast and the South West Coast Path this beach offers you miles of walking (on shingle) eastwards towards Weymouth and Portsmouth. You can also walk over the cliffs towards West Bay. Good car parking (National Trust) as well. Tremendous.

Wide expanse of light shingle beach. Lots of doggie friends to play with and the Hive Beachfront cafe for a snack afterwards. Heaven!

A stunning place to visit, However the National Trust charge more to park than any other location we visited Lulworth and Lyme Regis. The cafe is over-priced

Approached down a small lane through houses just to the East of Burton Bradstock, the beach has ample parking space (National Trust). The beach is pebbles and there are nice cliff top walks. There's also a nice cafe which is pleasant enough with toilet facilities.

Stunning cliffs and beach setting. Absolutely beautiful. Didn't see a church, and don't know how you can get Bored here. 😄 I don't watch the TV show, as you've probably gathered, but the setting here is worthy of being on film.

It's a £1 per hour and over so many hours and I think over 4-5 hours it becomes cheaper. There is also a National Trust car park (on the left), where if you are a member, you'll be able to park for free.
