Most of our passengers get off at Durdle Door and then after spending some time there; walk the one mile or so over the hill to Lulworth Cove. This walk is over a well trodden path over Hambury Tout which is a BIG hill (though not steep) and it does give magnificent views in both directions, remember to look behind you. The walk is a mile or so and takes about half an hour. However if you have trouble walking or hiking, please talk to your driver on the day for a suitable alternative.

PLEASE NOTE: Durdle Door is about half a mile from the road and paths to it are picturesque but rather hilly. Most people, young and old, can walk there and back, albeit with some effort and some sweat on their brow … that is half the fun after all! If you do have difficulty walking then you may find that you are not able to reach Durdle Door by foot. If this is the case then you can spend the whole time at Lulworth Cove, where there is plenty to see much closer to where the bus stops.

Make sure you are wearing comfortable clothes and shoes suitable for different terrains!
