Lulworth contains two of the most famous landmarks of the Jurassic Coast: Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove.
Apart from containing the two iconic landmarks mentioned above, the Lulworth estate (which covers some 20 square miles) also has the 17th century Lulworth Castle. The castle has regular annual events including the well known ‘Camp Bestival‘ music festival.
There are two villages with the name Lulworth. West Lulworth, which is the gateway village to the Jurassic Coast World Heritage site; and East Lulworth, which is located near to the Castle.
West Lulworth village has several small hotels, pubs, cafe, general store as well as the Cove Fish Shop selling fresh fish. East Lulworth village originally grew up around the church but the houses were later demolished to make way for Lulworth Castle’s park and the village was rebuilt outside the park grounds!
There is also the Lulworth British Army Ranges that include the coast west of Kimmeridge Bay to east Lulworth Cove, and the village of Tyneham and Worbarrow Bay, where you can enjoy some lovely walks (when they are open).
Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door are one of the most popular tourism attractions in Dorset. With stunning beaches, fantastic coastal walks and options for watersports. There’s also an interesting Visitor Centre at Lulworth which tells the story of the Jurassic Coast and its amazing geology. Read more about visiting Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door near Purbeck.
