Explore the West Bay coastline as seen on TV’s Broadchurch

West Bay, Dorset

Soak up the picture-perfect setting used in the TV series Broadchurch as you explore West Bay on Dorset’s Jurassic Coast.

Dorset’s dramatic coastline plays a starring role in TV drama, Broadchurch, alongside David Tennant and Olivia Colman.  The landscape informs the drama; the cliffs, the sea, the beach are all key elements of the story with West Bay providing the memorable backdrop for the picturesque coastal town of Broadchurch.  

The Dorset landscape is very much a character in the drama; see them for yourself and visit the locations that have found a place in your hearts, follow in the footsteps of the characters you’ve avidly followed and immerse yourself in the surroundings and let your imagination do the rest.
