Have seen many photos and always wanted to go, finally got to go and see it this year and was even better than I imagined, well worth the steep walk back up the cliff!

This is a stunning place to visit. We come here at least twice a year. The only criticism is the parking which is very expensive. Also you need to have cash to pay for parking, otherwise game over, no pay by phone or app, no...More

Amazing views and scenery from both Lulworth Cove and Durdle door! Would highly recommend! Durdle door is a bit of a walk and parking is costly but the view is worth the walk.More

Fantastic scenery at Durdle Door but be warned the walk to it from the car park is very steep. Worth the effort though. Watching a bird of prey hunting, riding the thermals and then returning to its nest above the arch of Durdle Door was...More

Stunning place! Visited in the peak summer tourist season, so it was quite crowded, but still worth the visit. Gorgeous scenery! The walk back is a bit steep, but brief. Be sure to dress in layers, as the wind is quite cold when cloudy, but...More

It's likely going to be very crowded but i think it shouldn't be any problem. There's so much space to park (for a fee) and it's quite a walk to cove and beach. The scenery's breathtaking, it's worth the long hike
