Lulworth Cove, Dorset

Located on the south coast of England, forming part of Dorset’s Jurassic Coast, you’ll find the perfect horseshoe-shaped bay of Lulworth Cove, an absolutely beautiful example of nature. Formed approximately 10,000 years ago, it still to this day continues to evolve.

A remarkable Dorset attraction attracts 500,000 visitors yearly and is the perfect place for a leisurely walk along the Natural World Heritage Coastline.

Up close, you can clearly see the layers of the rock have been eroded and have tilted steeply over millions of years. As the sea stared to break through the hard limestone it washed away the softer rocks behind creating the cove which sit along a breath-taking coastline, close to Durdle Door.

There is parking, a cafe, toilets located at Lulworth Cove and boat trips are organised in the summer, which gives you the opportunity to travel down the coastline, heading to Durdle Door and Mupe Bay.

Located at Lulworth Cove is the Jurassic Coast activities centre. Offering kayaking, coasteering and much more. You can have the chance to get up close and personal with the incredible rock formations and swim through the caves and tunnels which have formed over millions of years!

Lulworth Cove is one of my favourite places in Dorset, a tiny but oh so beautiful village, and millions of years of history all showcased in a true natural beauty of nature. Every time I visit, I fall even more in love.
