Durdle Door

This gigantic limestone arch is a popular destination for tourists, locals and thousands of beach goers every year. Privately owned, it’s open to the public but certain rules apply. No aerial photography or barbecues are allowed on site. As you walk up the path from Lulworth you begin to be drawn in further by the surrounding beaches and rock formations.

Steep steps lead up to the arch on top of the limestone, but the stairway up to the door is now closed due to nesting birds and for public safety. Maybe it’s to stop people from jumping off from the top of Durdle Door. The other steps lead down to the beach, where a relaxing summer day couldn’t be better along this ancient, British coastline.
