Itinerary – Subject to Change
Your vehicle will go through security well in time and will be ready for your arrival. The guide will walk to the gangway where you will be coming off of the ship to meet all of you. There will be a sign with our company name and your tour title on it.
First, you will head to Corfe Castle, which is the furthest location and we will be making our way back closer and closer.
Corfe Castle (village) is a unique little place which is a perfect example for this area.
Corfe Castle (the castle) is dominated by the ruins that give it its name. There is a small entrance fee to the castle itself if you wish to enter, payable on the day at the kiosk (pay by card or cash).
You can also have lunch here if you wish, there is a few pubs and a lovely bakery which you can visit.
Then, we will make our way to Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove.
Most of our passengers get off at Durdle Door and then after spending some time there; walk the one mile or so over the hill to Lulworth Cove. This walk is over a well trodden path over Hambury Tout which is a BIG hill (though not steep) and it does give magnificent views in both directions, remember to look behind you. The walk is a mile or so and takes about half an hour.
PLEASE NOTE: Durdle Door is about half a mile from the road and paths to it are picturesque but rather hilly. Most people, young and old, can walk there and back, albeit with some effort and some sweat on their brow … that is half the fun after all! If you do have difficulty walking then you may find that you are not able to reach Durdle Door by foot. If this is the case then you can spend the whole time at Lulworth Cove, where there is plenty to see much closer to where the bus stops. You will be given a map by the driver highlighting the main features, but it is a great place to follow your nose and have a look around at your own pace.
Lulworth Cove is in the village of West Lulworth and has a number of cafes, pubs, restaurants and a fish & chip shop. Durdle Door does have a small shop in the holiday park that you will walk through, and during the peak season a small refreshments kiosk on the cliff top. There are toilets at both Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door
