Relatively easy walk from Lulworth cove to Durdle Door. Nice landscape and stunning view! Nice afternoon walk with family. Bring good shoes and go all the way down to the beach at Durdle door. The cliffs are impressive and show interesting geological formations.

The Lulworth cove is a horse-shoe shaped place where ocean water comes in and creates a great pool for people to enjoy. One gets to get to the top for amazing views and enjoy the nature to the fullest.

Went around Lulworth Cove (though not with the intention of walking). We were just visiting and sightseeing.But the Cove area is beautiful and you see scenic spots. Stopped to eat on the way.

The car park in Lulworth is fairly pricey and gets really busy but that's to be expected from such a stunning part of the Dorst coast. Park in the main carpark and take a hike up the steep steps, up and over the downland to...More

The worst, smelly, scruffy toilets I have ever experienced. Paint peeling off the walls, described to us by a local man as 'manky' - he was right. The local Council is responsible for this abomination. What a cynical approach to visitors. Gross!

The walk from West Lulworth to Osmington Mills cover a lot of experiences of the jurassic coast. But Weymouth is a little far away to get great views.
