Exploring these villages and surrounding area is a must on a trip to Dorset. Visitors flock here to enjoy the crystal clear waters of the pebbled beaches and the dramatic scenery of the Jurassic Coast. West Lulworth is a traditional fishing village and old smugglers haunt, it has a long history and the village is dotted with pretty thatched cottages. East Lulworth has quaint stone cottages, a traditional pub and is home to the stunning Lulworth Castle and Park. There is a good range of accommodation around Lulworth to suit all family budgets.
On the coast, the best place to start is at the visitor centre, to find out more about the breathtaking Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door - two of the most iconic features on the Jurassic coast. It also has information on the variety of outdoor pursuits on offer; mountain biking, canoeing and coasteering to name a few.
If the family wants to do something different take a day trip out to the nearby Ape rescue centre at Monkey world, home to hundreds of chimpanzees, apes and other monkey species.
