A must to see. Beautiful place to visit. Pretty area with outstanding views. If you have a problem with mobility then the climb can prove difficult. But well worth the effort as views are great. Also the geological aspect is amazing.

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.
