A circular walk from Lulworth Cove in Dorset taking in a beautiful stretch of the Jurassic Coast, including the famous Durdle Door, before returning through farmland. The views across the World Heritage Coast are breathtaking and you'll be able to see the various chalk and limestone formations including coves, stacks and arches. There are no stiles (only gates) but the coast path follows undulating cliffs with several steep ascents. The inland return route follows a much gentler path, although you will share this with both cows and sheep. Approximate time 2-3hrs.

A bit of challenge and lot of great views.

Challenging to say the least, (mountain climbing springs to mind - as an absolute novice), but most definitely worth it. Great rewarding feeling at the end with 3 exhausted kids falling asleep in the car on the way home to give Mum and Dad a break.

Wonderful walk but tough going. You can avoid the hefty parking prices by parking in the approach rd if you get there early enough.
