Fantastic views

Not clearly sign posted from the main road to the car park. Easy to get up to and the views are fantastic.

great walk as always and fantastic views. Don't mind the rain it's a great view in most weathers. Hungry? Stop at the Down farm for fresh and organic scrumptiousness.

We used the National Trust Car Park at Thorncombe Woods where level access around a beautiful piece of native woodland led us to the junction of paths to Charmouth, Seatown and the top of The Gold Cap, a superb natural viewing point for the Jurrasic Coast. Lovely clear day allowed us a grand view including Portland thro to the Beer... More

Myself and my partner walked from west bay which was aprox 6 mile hike each way. It's a full days hike with a couple of watering holes along route. Well worth the effort, the views are incredible, an absolute must if you're in the area

An enjoyable morning scenic circular walk from Seatown car park. Probably classed as a moderate walk along a well signposted gradually rising path To the Golden Cap scenic viewpoint. On the way back is a disappointing National Trust centre purporting to be a farmhouse offering refreshments, Don't bother unless you are desperate as the refreshment options are very limited and...

We have a static caravan at Golden Cap simply because it is stunning and so very quiet with loads of walks for me and fishing for him. Seatown beach is getting more popular but is nice and long so you can find your own spot easily. The Anchor pub is perfect for a pint albeit a little expensive but worth... More

We walked from the National Trust car park where there is a little shop where you buy an ice cream. There are toilets near the park too. Quite a steep climb but well worth the effort. The view from the top is amazing. From Golden Cap we walked back down along the cliff tops into Charmouth for a well deserved... More

The day before we came to Golden Cap, we'd done the most horrific uphill walk that was so badly signposted, we got lost! As you can imagine, we were so very happy to find lots of posts clearly directing you where to go on your walk. Our family is quite a hiking one and we enjoy challenging walks in beautiful... More

On a clear day you can see the whole of Lyme Bay - well worth the effort of the short climb. Lots of choice of walking routes.
