Day Out: Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door

Lovely sunny Saturday – it would be foolish not to make most of it! So we quickly eat our delicious lunch (steak, baked baby potatoes and Cesar salad – yep I know yummmmmy), change into comfy clothes and shoes, set our sat-nav and off we go…

Destination: Lulworth Cove BH20 5RH

Approx. 25 miles

Time: 45 minutes

We arrive just before 3pm, Attila buys parking ticket (up to 2 h – £3) and I am already taking pictures. I love this beautiful Jurassic coast line – must see for breath-taking scenery! Then we take 30 min uphill walk to Durdle Door. We take our time, enjoying beautiful weather and stunning view.


It is really busy today. No surprise there: each year more than 200.000 walkers use the footpath between Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door, making it the busiest stretch in the south-west.


Durdle Door is a world famous geological wonder, with its massive rock arch. This place never fails to impress. You can even go down to the rocky beach. It is nice place to have picnic (sadly no BBQ allowed), sunbathe and go swimming (well I would recommend to so it on summer only, unless you want to freeze).


We are heading back to Lulworth Cove. Of course, we run out of water, so we end up buying ice lollies (good excuse for little sugary treat) 🙂


On the way back, we decide to have a quick look at Lulworth Cove and Stair Hole. One of those must see places – especially during sunset!


I can’t wait to go back ❤
