There is quite a climb up from the car park and visitor centre at Lulworth cove but it is worth it and the £3 for 2 hours parking fee. The paths are wide with a good surface underfoot. As you climb the views along the coast in both directions are lovely, the actual Durdle Door is very beautiful and geologically... More

If You are in south UK You can't miss this place. Very beautifull and outstanding view. Great walking paths, and this charming village nearby it's a great place to spent lovely sunday with your family (sunny wheather is a must). Speaking about the bay itself, when its a summer sunny day you have a felling of being in some warm... More

Visit often and never tire of seeing this lovely spot in Dorset. Great for walks and stunning scenery. Lulworth Cove also has a variety of tea rooms, restaurants and hotels so you could stay here and make it a base to explore other attractions in Dorset. Must do if you are in the area

Spectacular, geographic features, which make you think how insignificant we all are! Civilisations come and go, emperors, kings, and queens strut their stuff - and these 'bulwarks' of the English coast stand looking imperiously over a restless sea. Fantastic - and better still if you can get down onto the beach at Durdle Door, and imbibe the scale and age... More

Lulworth Cove is a place from childhood holidays. We revisited it on a warm autumn morning. My wife does have some mobility issues and yet taking it steady its a nice walk to the cove from the car park. A distance of about 300 yards. Once sat on the shore it's so peaceful early on an autumn morning. Not sure... More

Arguably one of the most beautiful places we've been to in the uk. See is turquoise blue and in summer it's busy but that's to be expected. So beautiful but not recommended if you have mobility issues.

Durdle Door is stunning! Don't be put off by the steep footpath it is totally worth walking down to find a little piece of paradise. When walking back up take the higher path, looks harder but it is much shorter and will save your legs :) Lulworth Cove is also really pretty and the village sells yummy ice creams to... More

Always wanted to see Durdle door, so when we went to Weymouth went on a half day trip to Lulworth Cove/Durdle door. What we were not told till we arrived in the coach park was it was a very very steep hill to climb to see Durdle Door. I was gutted ! .However we visited Lulworth Cover and although it... More
