This has got to be one of my favourite places. On a clear day the views are stunning. Huge skies, peace and quiet and nature. A walk through the woods first and then up to golden cap itself. Stunning all year.

Walk to the trig point on Golden Gap and look east along the line of Chesil Beach, to the west towards Charmouth and Lyme Regis and to the north for quintessential England at its best.

You find the best car park at langdon hill which is as you drive up the hill out of Chideock heading to Charmouth there is a small turning right nearly at top of hill SP for the church Its a great walk highly recommend it is about 1 hour walk to get there depending how quick you walk!!

Golden cap is the highest point on the Jurassic Coast and gives spectacular views over Lyme Bay. In the distance you can see the whole Jurassic coastline from Portland in the East and to Exmouth and beyond to the West .If you don't want to walk the whole coast, take a trip to Langdon Wood, there is a flat circular...

Car park is difficult to find if you don't have a map, but once there parking is free for NT members. There is a lovely walk to the Cap, with a reasonable gradient given the height of the summit which provides magnificent 360 degree views, well worth it.

Fantastic views from all of these walks. If you are going to the top then the easiest way is from the Langdon Woods car park. Steps up the hill from this way do help. Just spend a while and take in the views, even if the sea mist did restrict ours

There are lovely walks with stunning views, all around Golden Cap and Stonebarrow - some of the hills are steep and you need to enjoy walking. Keep your dog on the lead and your children close at hand when near the cliff edges as they are unfenced!

This is not very easy to find and sat nav did not help! So we did the next best thing and asked a local. Once we found Golden Cap (the turning to the car park is only about 100 metres from the main road, so don't do what we did and go on for a mile!) the walk and views... More

My family and I were staying in Charmouth so decided to walk up stonebarrow hill to the golden cap. The walk was further then expected and I would not recommend walking up if you have a pushchair as it gets very steep, there are no footpaths and the road is narrow in places. Once you reach the top the views... More

Would describe as a must-do, but imagine it would be hard from someone old or infirm. Great views from the top, and throughout the walk, especially on a clear day. Parking easy at the car-park, and is currently refunded if spending over £20 at the Anchor in Sea Town.
