Durdle door is an amazing experience. So many different rock formations, all very interesting and beautiful. It is a steep walk down to and back up from durdle door but totally worth it.

Parked the car (£4 for two hours, using a particularly awkward ticket machine) and walked down the hill to the cove. About two thirds of the way down there was an overflowing drain in the middle of the road, from which what looked and smelled...More
