Depart for the drive to stunning Durdle Door in Dorset, with its massive rock arch, set right on the Jurassic Coast. There is a sloping beach for swimming, along with caves and exciting rock strata. Green fields, rugged chalk cliffs, and pebbled beaches dominate this stretch of the Dorset Coast Path.

The natural arch of Durdle Door is a physical feature that has kept its same name for more than 1,000 years, showing that things don’t change too quickly on the coast. The name is derived from the Old English word ‘thirl’, meaning to pierce (as in ‘nostril’). Its main feature is the natural arch, known as the ‘barn door’, formed out of Purbeck limestone and high enough for a good-sized sail boat to pass through.

After seeing Durdle Door, enjoy a walk with your guide along the coastal path to Lulworth Cove. Lulworth Cove is filled with timeless charm, including thatched cottages, fishing boats, lobster pots, wildflowers, and quaint gift shops. There will be time to take photographs before re-joining the bus for the return to Portland.
