"Lulworth Cove" West Lulworth by Sjalen

West Lulworth Travel Guide: 22 reviews and 57 photos

Along the spectacular Jurassic Coast you find the pretty village of Lulworth, strictly speaking divided into East and West and with its famous cove as a horseshoe once you reach the sea. The picture here is taken from the coastal footpath from Durdle Door to Lulworth itself, but if you drive here you will first reach the more inland part of the village with pretty thatched cottages, a village pub and really quaint scenery. I imagine the country road here being quite thick with cars summertime since the road is also full of Bed and Breakfasts until you reach the cove so if you can, visit it off season.

Once you reach the cove, the whole thing is less pretty because of a huge car park by the visitors centre and to us it felt rather artificial, having just left the relative solitude at Durdle Door and found ourselves in something more like Windermere, but we still enjoyed the hours we spent here and we learnt a lot about the Jurassic Coast which was the main thing.
