Burton Bradstock is a village in south west Dorset, England. The village has a population of 979 (2001). Situated on the Chesil Beach, 3 miles east of Bridport the village nestles around the church of St. Mary the Virgin and 16th and 17th century thatched cottages punctuate the unspoilt centre which boasts a primary school, shop, post office stores, beach café, two pubs, hotel, garage, village hall, reading room and library.

Burton Bradstock is also famous for its position within the Jurassic Coast. The cliffs have a layer near the top called 'Inferior Oolite', where big ammonites are believed to be found. The cliffs however, are difficult to access, so fossil hunting mainly takes place at the base of the cliffs where rockfalls often reveal new finds.

Cycling between Bridport and Burton Bradstock takes about half an hour using the coastal road. The village has local footpaths around it including one to the beach and the coastpath to West Bay.
