We enjoyed a full day of fun at Lulworth cove and Durdle door over the Easter break. We started with brunch at the boat cafe in Lulworth Cove and then searched for fossils on the beach. We visited the visitor centre and learnt about the Jurassic period and then walked to Durdle door. We decided to do half the walk with our 4 year old and then drive the car from the Lulworth car park to the Durdle door car park. The parking tickets are valid in both, so it’s worth buying a ticket for 5/6 hours if you want to make a day of it. The kids loved playing on the beach, skimming stones and just messing around. Great views and lots of fun.

Around a mile between the two with plenty of parking available at either end. Some steep hills so certainly energising despite being relatively short. Just about right for our young children.

I’m not quite sure why TA would want to sell anyone an expensive tour but we parked up in East Lulworth and from the car park you see the steep climb over the cliff. Follow the path up and then down again to the viewpoint of beautiful Durdle door or go right down to the beach.

Lulworth Cove is in the other direction from the car park towards the coast, just head for the shops.

It took us 1.5 hrs to do both in quite windy conditions and the views are amazing. However I would probably avoid peak periods in the summer as it’ll be packed!

The walk to Durdle door is much shorter from the West car park by the camping grounds.

Durdle door is a must visit if you're in Dorset. The car park is expensive at both Lulworth cove and Durdle door (Minimum £4 for 1-2 hrs). It is a steep walk down some steps to reach Durdle door beach front but worth the trek along the cliffs even to see the breathtaking scenery. We went in March and it wasn't too busy but I can imagine this is a very popular attraction during the summer. Take a camera.
