Trip Planner: Europe / UK / England / Dorset / West Lulworth / Lulworth Cove
Lulworth Cove represent two of Britain's finest examples of a cove and a rock arch. Take the footpath between the two landforms. Lulworth Cove forms a nearly perfect horseshoe around the sea, with soft sand along the high point in its curve and cliffs tumbling down to the water at the cove's ends. About 2 km (1.25 mi) to the east, the rock arch of Durdle Door juts out into the sea. It takes its name from the Old English word for drill, "thirl," which aptly describes how the sea created a large hole in the limestone cliff. The area retains its natural setting, and a mobile kiosk on the walking path to the arch in summer is the only facility you'll find here.

Lulworth Cove reviews
This used to be a beautiful, quiet place but now completely ruined by being over commercialised with shops, cafes and pubs blaring out loud music. Such a shame.

We have been coming to Dorset for the last 8 years, and visit Lulworth cove each time. It is a beautiful cove. Very clean and well looked after by the locals.

Beautiful spot to visit. The views are stunning, especially if you can make the short trek to the top in time for sunrise.
