Fabulous unique coastline. However, the track from Lulworth Cove to Durdle Door can get very busy and is gravelled over. need to walk further to get away from the crowds.

Visiting the cove when it's sunny and warm is just the most amazing thing, I actually remember saying to a friend "wouldn't it be nice to get married here". You can reach the cove by going down a cute little village which... More

This place is scenic! We parked at the Lulworth cove and walked along the coast path to reach Durdle Door. Good walking boots are definitely recommended. Watch out for the weather...I found that it could turn easily so do check weather before heading out if you are going outside of the summer time period.

Really lovely place to go definitely worth seeing the breath taking views.....great for an adventure we did our own mini treasure hunt which was such good fun with all the places in the cove to hide things in....a lovely beach for a picnic and because of the cove it wasn't too windy x

Lulworth Cove is amazing and the views are fantastic...if you have it....use the panoramic function on your camera/phone to capture the bay. My wife and 8yr step son then decided to walk to Durdle Door but the there is a very steep hill which... More

Lulworth Cove is impressive even in wet wild weather. It's worth the climb from the cove to Durdle Door but best to avoid in the summer and busy weekends.

Lots of opportunities for wonderful walks along the cliffs, hills or pebble beaches. Traces of old oyster beds in the cove. Spectacular rock formations.

Upon arrival, we parked by Lulworth Cove and took the short pleasant walk down to it. However once we got there, I was shocked at how grotty Lulworth Cove actually is. After reading reviews before I went, I assumed it would be a lovely blue haven. However, it was covered in seaweed and dirty rocks - Disappointing :( The Marshfield... More
