Guided Walking in Britain

Dorset Coast    Lulworth Cove


Lulworth Cove is a popular seaside destination with stunning local scenery. The Cove itself is a near-perfect
circle which has been carved by the waves into the soft rocks. A 20 minute walk along the cliff path
takes you to Durdle Door, the area's other geological wonder. This impressive natural sea arch has
been carved from the harder chalk rocks. The Heritage Centre  is well worth a visit during your stay.
When you are not walking there are several castles to visit.  Situated just a couple of miles inland,
Lulworth Castle is a 17th century mock medieval castle. The iconic ruins of Corfe Castle stand guard
 over a natural gap in the Purbeck Hills. Dating from the 11th century it is now maintained by the National Trust.
