Take a glimpse into the ideal English village of Lulworth Cove. Filled with quaint history, crystal clear waters, stunning vistas, hiking, dining, and beach-going this town is worth the visit in every way.
Lulworth Cove, Dorset, England, UK
Located approximately 125 miles south of London, Lulworth Cove is on the southern coast of England and is part of the Jurassic Coast.
We visited Lulworth Cove in the middle of July which turned out to be perfect timing for the hiking that we had planned. Beach-going and swimming are also popular summertime activities for many locals in the area but for a couple of North Carolinians it felt more like a cool October visit to the Outer Banks.
How to Get There:
What to Do:
Hike: Lulworth Cove is filled with hiking opportunities. We were only there for a short period of time but we were able to take advantage of the hike up to the "Stair Hole" which provided great vistas of the Cove to one side and the unique Stair Hole natural landmark. From here we took the South West Coast Path to the Durdle Door too. There's also a White Nothe Circular Walk which is filled with breathtaking coastal views. We enjoyed just exploring the land and taking in the views. There are more than enough places to keep you busy for days in and around Lulworth.
Beach: While the water was considerably cold to those of us from the Southern US, there were plenty of people who were enjoying a warmer than average day at the local beach. The sands were crowded and folks were enjoying everything from swimming to frisbee to picnics along the coast.
Water Activities: There are a ton of options for those who want to get out on the water and explore. The Jurassic Coast has a range of options from Kayak Tours, to Paddleboarding, to Sailing and Boat Rides.
Castle & Park: Pay a small fee and you too can enjoy a day of breathtaking countryside views and the elegant Lulworth Castle.
