About
A challenging walk along the South West Coast Path. It is a switchback up and down four hills before returning along a relatively level ridge. It offers great photo opportunities passing some of the geological highlights of the Jurassic Coast. In late Spring and early summer the limestone grassland beside the path is full of rare flowers and clouds of butterflies.

It's really worth the trek to see such beautiful views.. Quite tricky with little children as it isn't pram friendly and quite steep but definitely worth it. There are some steep steps down to the beach which I would not recommend to anyone who has had surgery or not strong on their legs. We went with a family member who had surgery a month or so ago and it was incredibly hard for her to climb back up the stairs so please be mindful.

We got down to general door very early in the morning, and witnessed the most amazing sunrise and spectacular views. Unfortunately by 9:30 am it was full of tourists and children and prams and lots of loud music. So we left. But it was well worth the walk and hike.

It is quite interesting trying to get down from the car park. With social distancing, they turned it into a one way system but it is not clear which way you should to go to get down. Some people ignored the no entry sign and just carried on.

The view is amazing and breathtaking. It can be scary if you do not like heights. The path/steps down to the beach seems narrow and social distancing not possible. We did not venture down as it seems too much hard work. We went to the beach at Lulworth Cove instead.

We parked for 4 hours at the cost of £5. We also treated ourselves with a softie ice cream at £2.50 each. Not too bad. There are also clean toilet facilities available.

We had a great time and will definitely be back.

Wonderful place spoilt by litter. Unbelievably, most of the litter bins have been replaced by signs saying take your litter home.
Maybe spend some of the £15 parking fee employing some local kids to collect bins/litter. Typical money scrimping by the owners and then blaming tourists for spoiling their money machine. (We took ours and others litter home as there were no bins whatsoever at the lower levels.

The view is magnificent once you get to the top of the cliff but it is not for the faint hearted. I am a fit pensioner but I was exhausted by the time I reached the top. Due to the COVID situation they have a one way system which is fine but if you find it hard going there is no alternative but to plow on. Not sure how the old guy with the stick faired who was behind me. We did not venture down to the beach which I would to love to have done as I was not sure if I could have got back up! The hardest part is the climb back up to the car park after you have walked all the way round. I actually fell on the gravel path and my young pup lay down and refused to move. It was a very hot day and there is no shade there is amp,e parking but I think at £5 it’s a bit expensive. The toilet facilities are excellent, very clean. We parked at Lulworth cove then Durdle door so it cost us £10

This is a fascinating place to visit, ok so it’s a bit of a walk but well worth. The see was calm and that beautiful blue the rock feature and view are just stunning .

It was busier than what I would have liked especially with current restrictions. Finding it and parking was easy.

The walk along the hills is hard but worth it.

A lot of these reviews are for the wrong thing - basically for going down to Durdle Door and back. Indeed, that was very busy.

Once you get past Durdle Door, though, the crowds melt away, and the scenery no less spectacular.

There are some seriously steep sections, but the payoff are elevated views of Durdle Door and the coast, white cliffs and in sunny conditions a sea colour you simply won't believe is England.

Its a truly wonderful walk.

accessible by car if you dont take any paid trip here. From parking it takes 10 minutes by quick walk to get to the beach and see this gate closely. Good place for picnic or swimming or just hiking. definitely worth to visit and enjoy this natural miracle.

Called here on our way from lulworth cove to sidmouth. Parked at the top. Car parking was a bit dear. Toilet facilities. The walk is quite steep so make sure you wear suitable footwear and are fit because you have to walk back up. The views are amazing though and definitely worth it. I walked it at 6 months pregnant.
