Lulworth Cove

The next stop on our sightseeing tour of Southern England, we’re making an early start at beautiful Lulworth Cove in Dorset.

The Cove and surrounding coastline are part of the world famous Jurassic Coast – a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The pretty pebbled beach is in a sheltered cove and there is a small village and visitor’s centre too.

We head upto the cliff tops to take a panoramic view out over the cove.

The coast around Lulworth is a fantastic place to see blow holes, caves, arches and coves.

We’re heading up and along the cliffs towards one of the most iconic sights on the English coastline – Durdle Door. The smaller arch below is a taste of what is to come.

But then the instantly recognisable archway comes into view. Durdle Door is one of Dorset’s most photographed and iconic landmarks.

It’s part of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site and is an extremely popular beauty spot.

Durdle Door is a natural limestone arch and can be reached via some fairly steep steps.

The stretch of footpath between Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove is the busiest in the south west and sees more than 200,000 walkers every year.
