Amazing scenery

It's well worth the time and effort to walk down (and up again after you're done) to see this. Great scenery.

STUNNING and WELL worth the hike up the coastal path. There are at least a couple of different ways up to Durdle Door. We took the longer but more gentle path up and the shorter and steeper path back down again. I am glad we did it that way. The shorter steeper pathway (which starts from the parking lot of... More

Durdle Door can only be described as overwhelming! The pictures you see do not do this justice- a must see! Be prepared to walk quite a bit but once you arrive it will be worth the journey!

Stunning locations spoilt by so many other visitors. However, it was a sunny day during the Whitsun break. It wasn't too bad, in terms of tourists, when we arrived. By the time we had finished exploring Lulworth it was extremely busy. There are good facilities including plenty of places to eat. Personally, I would choose to explore places of outstanding...

This time we parked in a busy car park half a mile from Lulworth Cove. We didn't particularly care for the developments at the car park but enjoyed the short walk down to the cove which is so pretty with awesome contorted bedding planes visible in the cliffs. It's a unique place and well worth a visit. We had some... More

There is only one way to get to view Durdle Door and it is down a very steep track. Once down the track there are lots of steps to get down to the beach area. It is well worth the walk but it's hard going getting back up. Lulworth Cove is a lovely place to see and is a sun... More

Absolutely beautiful place, make sure to take the camera and aim for a sunny day so that you can appreciate the view :) Parking is quite expensive so make sure you take enough change. You can use your parking at both the carparks so no need to buy another ticket!
