Durdle Door and the surrounding coast line are beautiful natural landmarks that I certainly wish to visit again come summer. We arrived at 5pm hoping to get some nice sunset photographs. I checked online prior to arriving and saw no closing times as such, until we arrived to the car park. The car park was very confusing, with signs next... More

A bit of a hike but worth it for the views and the beach. We used tripods and drones to film around the arches and on the beach. Great views and choice of walking on the headland, or using the stairs to get on to the beach.

Stunning worth a visit. Bit of a climb though. Parking available, which we eventually found when you realise you have to drive through a campsite to get there.

This place never fails to impress and take your breath away and that's just the walk.. it's not for the faint hearted but you can take your time or cheat a little if you park in Durdle Door and walk down gently. For the more adventurous park at Lulworth cove and do the big mile. Have fun.

Approached through the private caravan park, the car park for Durdle Door is generous and marked with spaces for those with special needs cars. There is a pay and display meter that operates all the year round. (Disgraceful greed - should be free parking in winter.) Heavy shoes needed and change of shoes when returning to car to cope with...

A really lovely place to visit and we took a boat ride out to Durdle Door which was well worth it for the views. We got there quite early so it was nice and quiet for a while. However, during the late morning it began to get very busy (it was a warm sunny day) and on watching people arrive... More

We travelled as big family to Dorset. It was lovely location to spend a weekend in Summer. I liked Lulworth Cove so much. Although pebbly beach, it was fun getting into water. .! Quite a safe beach to get kids into water. Durdle door involved climbing which elderly and kids in my family avoided. So, parked our car in Durdle... More

Beautiful and dramatic place. You'll need decent foot wear but worth the walk. Would only recommend for the able bodied as the footpath is steep and the steps down to the beach are uneven.
