Today we walked from Langdon Hill down to Seatown up the Golden Cap, past St Gabriel's before returning up to the car park. Excellent views well signposted routes. We have done many walks here and look forward to coming back for many more.

It is difficult to find words to describe Golden Cap. Breathtaking views across the Jurassic coast and out to sea. Very peaceful. Yes, it is a bit of a climb, but well worth it. If you drive to the Langdon Hill National Trust car park (free parking for NT members), take it slow on the approach road - it is... More

We parked at the NT car park, which is free for members, and walked through the woods before ascending to the top of Golden Cap. It wasn't too difficult for our two kids (5 & 8) to climb either and the views from the top on a clear day were fabulous. Highly recommended and a great spot for a picnic.

This is our favorite area for walking, usually starting from the NT car park at Stonebarrow following a variety of paths down to the coast path or St. Gabriel's chapel, climbing part or all the way up the magnificent Golden Cap and ending up on the beach at Seatown. The NT car park at Stonebarrow affords fine views and is... More

We walked along the paths to an open field with spectacular views of the coast. The cows we passed didn't seem to mind that we rested on their hill.

Just do it. We walked from Charmouth to West Bay. Beautiful countryside. Try the Jurassic Coast bus service for your outward journey and walk back.

We have been here many a time, when we were young and older. There are lots of lovely walks here and the car parking is pretty safe. Lovely views towards Lyme Regis and seatown and West Bay the other side. Visit the visitor centre to help towards the upkeep of Stonebarrow as it is known locally. Well worth the visit... More

This is an inspiring walk for anyone reasonably fit. Start or finish at the Anchor Inn, and if the kids complain too much, promise them sweets from the caravan park shop just above the car park. Works a treat for us! The walk itself is stunning in all weathers, and if you wrap up properly it is a real treat... More

After parking the car, a short trek through woodlands and fields is rewarded by stunning views of the Dorset costline
