We did this walk from Lulworth Cove but carried on further down the coast & then inland to Tynham. The views over the coast & Lulworth army range are very impressive, but there are some very steep climbs & descents, so this part of the coastline is not for a "stroll", we headed into Tynham thinking it was a village...

I visited this place in November last year and it was rather chilly and cold. I should have visited in the summer time. The coast walk was lovely and it has got good museum.

After deliberating over a destination for a valentines day stroll i took the decision to drive 3 hours down to the dorset coast and make way towards Lulworth. Safe to say that the decision was one of my best to date! Upon arriving into a quaint little village you are greeted by a large car park with ample parking and... More

There are some good paths and some which are not so great. This in part is very weather dependent. It was very wet and slippy when we visited, so care is needed.

Indigo blue skies and stunning scenery mixed with superb geology made this a special afternoon. Park in the visitor centre then explore. The paths are well marked and suitable for most. The walks are not that strenuous but I would recommend supportive footwear if exploring the cliffs, beach etc.Go at different times of the day as the lighting has a... More

I embarked on the Lulworth Cove and Fossil Forest Walk with some friends in March 2016. It is really nice and a great way to see the geology in the area. At the time the Fossil Forest was closed off due to landslides following bad storms in the Winter just past, but I have been before and it is great,... More

If you are in Dorset you really need to visit this part of England. The coast line here is beyond expectations and easy to get to. We visited on a Saturday afternoon and there were lots of shops on the way and plenty of places to eat and drink. The walk is not too strenuous although some of it is... More

Lulworth Cove is a nice variety on the coast path. It offers a chance to both walk the beach and climb the slopes for great views.
