Things to do

 

Lulworth Cove

A short walk from the Castle Inn lies Lulworth Cove. Formed by the combined forces of the sea and a river swollen by melting ice at the end of the last Ice Age, the cove is famous for its unique geology and crystal blue waters.

Durdle Door

A little further up the coast is another iconic Dorset landmark. Durdle Door is one of the most photographed rock arches in the world. This magnificent limestone arch was formed when the power of the waves forged a hole through the middle.

Lulworth Castle & Park

The pub’s namesake and a real slice of history. The majestic Lulworth Castle is set within 1,000 acres of deer park and is typically open to the public every day (except Saturday) from Easter to December but it’s worth checking opening times before you set off.

Tyneham Village

Tyneham Village was evacuated in 1943 during WWII and is now a ghost village frozen in time. It is open to the public most weekends, depending on the Lulworth Ranges schedule – an active army firing range – so check times before you go.
