Walking the South West Coast Path at Lulworth Cove is a brilliant experience, offering stunning views across the Jurassic Coast. An Ordnance Survey map is an ideal companion for a day’s walking. Walking the coast path to the east of Lulworth Cove brings you to the incredible geological formations of Worbarrow Bay and the mysterious abandoned village of Tyneham. To the west is the iconic Durdle Door, and further afield the lovely coastal hamlets of Osmington Mills and Ringstead.

The displays, animations and films in the Lulworth Cove Visitor Centre tell the story of the Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door, two of the most iconic geological features on the Jurassic Coast. The rocks first formed 150 million years ago, before the hard Jurassic and soft Cretaceous rocks were dramatically contorted around 40 million years ago and then sculpted by natural erosion into the two magnificent coastal landforms we see today.

The Visitor Centre is available for education groups and field sessions with the Lulworth Education Service rangers can be booked.
