Take a look around and see what there is to see and do. Durdle Door, in Dorset, is the most stunning and easily accessible location along this county's spectacular shore. Two large bays under sheer chalk cliffs are parted by a promontory out of which the enormous "door" has been carved by the sea, backed by an unblemished sweep of that downland distinctive to Dorset. A secluded swimming lagoon is surrounded by a reef and a promontory.
It was filmed here for the false suicide in Far from the Madding Crowd. It is reached through a vast caravan park, but once passed, it quickly fades from view.
One mile east, the more well-known Lulworth Cove Lake is a tourist attraction with rowing boats for hire. It's a geological marvel, and it's still lovely in the winter. On the cliff's edge, a decrepit red-brick coastguard station and associated shanties still survive. A "fossil forest" of tree stumps has formed over the cliffs to the east.
Lulworth is a lovely town about two and a quarter miles north east, and nearby stands the great remains of Lulworth Castle in a forested park. It was started in 1588 and finished in the 17th century before being extensively damaged by fire in 1929. The neighbouring chapel (1786) was England's first legitimate Roman Catholic church following the Reformation.

Thomas Weld, the castle's owner, was granted special permission by George III to participate in the Reformation.
Approximately 7,000 acres of gorgeous terrain, including more than 4 miles of spectacular coastline, are utilised by the Army as artillery ranges and, more often than not, are off-limits to the general public to the east of here. During World War II, the Army assumed control of the region, presumably until the war was finished.
Roads crossing it are occasionally open, but the presence of unexploded shells makes for dangerous travel. One of the notes left on the church door of Tyneham, a devastated village in the heart of England's war-torn countryside, says, "Please treat the church and dwellings with care; we have given up our homes, where we have lived for centuries, to assist in the battle to keep men free." We intend to return one day to express our gratitude for the way you have treated the community."
Worbarrow Bay, one mile south of East Lulworth, with a magnificent pyramid of extraordinary rock strata and colour known as the Tout rising above it, is definitely worth a visit, although it is only accessible on a regular basis during the month of August.

Durdle Door Has A Lot To Offer

The region has a significant lot of historical significance, in addition to its obvious natural beauty and natural wonders. As well as several various types of food businesses, there is an information centre. Although it is still highly busy in March, the situation is far worse. There is a large parking area, which is also quite popular with visitors. This challenging walk to Durdle Door begins with a steep ascent from Lulworth Cove and concludes with a rapid descent from Durdle Door.
