So whether you’re an Eclipse Cross driver seeking adventure, or perhaps looking for somewhere to take your new Mitsubishi PHEV 2019 for a drive, here are our 4 best summer road trips in Dorset:

1. Lulworth Cove

Take a trip in your Mitsubishi to Lulworth Cove for the breath-taking scenery of its sparkling blue waters nestled in green cliffsides. This white pebble beach is one location in Dorset not to be missed! If you are into hiking, this is a great starting location for a trek across the Jurassic coast. Once you’ve parked up, there are lots of walking routes that lead to other popular locations including Tyneham village and Durdle Door.


2. Sandbanks to Studland

Sandbanks is a peninsula close to Poole Harbour. It’s the place to go on a summer road trip if you enjoy talking strolls on white sandy beaches and sampling exquisite local seafood.

To explore this area of Dorset further, take the chain ferry from Sandbanks across to Studland on the Isle of Purbeck. Take your Mitsubishi car for a drive around the sprawling heathland and sandy dunes or set up camp on the beach where you can hire all kinds of water sports equipment.

The Isle of Portland is the southernmost point of Dorset and an ideal road trip location for people looking to explore a different kind of Dorset. Discover tales of folklore and pirates among museums, castles and three lighthouses or take the time to relax and soak up the unique scenery.
