Park your vehicle in the large parking area and take the foot path down to Durdle door. The view along the foot path is fantastic. Going down the path is not difficult at all, but coming back it's a steep climb but nothing much. Nice beach & a good area for a sea bath. Noticed quite a few people taking... More

This area is well worth a visit.The scenery is outstanding with the secluded Lulworth cove and the spectacular Durdle door.It is a trek up the hill but well worth the effort walking from Lulworth cove.

Great to see in reality and the cove would be beautiful in the right weather! Ample parking at reasonable price, but you don't need that long if the weather is poor. Was quite surprised by the amount of litter, a few more bins might be an idea.

These are iconic places in the UK, make sure you go to see them whilst fit enough to view them! The walk to and from Durdle Door really tests the legs.

Great views. Watch the walk down to Durdle door though. The steps have been washed away so you need to scramble down the muddy slope. We saw a few people poorly prepared and falling over.

Both areas are incredibly beautiful. Lulworth is very tourist driven, has visitors centre, shops and cafe galore. Lots of ice cream! Small pebble beach, but walk around the cove for more peace. Easy walk, nice for small children as safe. Durdle door, however is more of an expedition!! You park in a camp site, sometimes has a small refreshment kiosk.... More

What a stunning bay. We visited on a very sunny day in August 2014 and we couldn't believe our eyes. it genuinely felt as if we had visited a tropical paradise the sea was a gorgeous pale blue. We would defiantly visit again.

We drove there from London almost 3:30 hrs, the place is worth it, brave yourself for the hike which is an adventure in itself. Parking fees is £3 for 2 hrs There are some tea/coffee stalls along the way. Nice clean restrooms in the holiday park essential for kids :) , was impressed, wish to come back soon, for a... More
