Old Harry Rocks is a natural landmark on the Isle of Purbeck in Dorset, England. It consists of tall, tower-like chalk formations subjected to several million years’ worth of erosion by powerful sea waves, which gives them their unique shape. They’re some of the most dramatic features along England’s southern coastline.
The rocks are visible from many miles away and form part of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site. Old Harry Rocks has become an important tourist attraction due to its unique geological characteristics and stunning views across the English Channel. Visitors can admire the views of the white cliffs, observe local wildlife such as seals and seabirds, go kayaking or coasteering (a mix of rock scrambling and cliff jumping), or explore nearby attractions including Corfe Castle and Swanage Beach.
