I can't wait to return here in the summer months. Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door are two fantastic scenic beach locations that I will recommend to family and friends. Great place for winter walks also when it's dry!!

We visited here Saturday just gone and it was a busy spot, parking the car There are facilities of toilets, cafes etc although as it's winter not fully open. The walk up is a trek so wear comfy shoes and don't forget the camera, it was unbelievable to see woman wearing heels up this cliff walk? The top path was... More

What a place. Great walking country and every step opens up a new vista. Amazing. Get one of the walking maps in the visitor centre. They are only 60p and a great help for learning about the local history and geology.

A visit to this extraordinary coastline would not be complete without a visit to Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door. If like us you are not in the spring of youth, then prepare well for this visit. You will need plenty of time to explore this fascinating coastline and if you go by car then make sure you allow enough hours... More

A beautiful piece of coastline, and the walk is invigorating. It was very windy at the cliff edge but the views are stunning. We walked the dogs down and although the walk back up is tough we felt it was worth it!

The place is absolutely worth a visit. The view is amazing. It was very windy when we got there but once we got to the beach it was nice down there. It wasn't crowded so we could enjoy it. It's just something special what you probably wanna see. It's on the hill so you may be prepared for a little... More

It is simply awesome view looking down into the cove and Durdle Door. Definitely a place to visit. However, you do need to be prepared for the steep walk down and even more the climb back up. But is you are ready for that it is wonderful at any time of year. However, I would recommend going on a sunny... More
