Visiting Lulworth Cove
Continuing my series of my Dorset trip, I first went to Durdle door, which you can read about here, and then the next day I went to Lulworth Cove.
This is what I will be talking about in today's post.
It first started that we left our caravan and walked to the Cove. We were staying in a caravan right in front of Durdle door, so I can tell you it is definitely a walk distance, and you will enjoy it a lot more than if you drive to it - you end up missing a few beautiful things.
When you are almost there, you can see the village from the top, and must I say what a gorgeous little village called West Lulworth:
That village has a few information places, that are completely free, some cool little restaurants, ice cream of course, and then you reach the beach - Lulworth Cove.
This is a pebble beach, but the pebbles are really white, and you are surrounded by the coast with its' greens and whites, and the water with a beautiful blue colour.
The cove is on the Jurassic coast of Dorset, just like Durdle Door - well, they are neighbours... Hehehe.
The coast is owned by Lulworth Estate and it is part as one of the wonders of southern England.
Every year, more than 250 thousand people walk the hill I walked from Durdle door to the village, and summer months are the most busy.
I will say though, the busy they get is not annoying busy, you can see in the pictures, we can all walk easily, lay on the beach easily too. Which means, you will still have calmness and beauty to enjoy.
The cove has been in the TV programme Seven Natural Wonders, in the TV film Nuts in May, and was also part of The Curse of Fenric from Doctor Who, and on the movie World War Z.
It was also mentioned in a poem from Thomas Hardy called At Lulworth Cove a Century Back.

We had a lot of fun there.
What about you? Have you ever gone to Lulworth Cove?
If not, would you go?
