A lot of hassle trying to park and really busy. The car park is not regulated and people park wherever they want causing chaos. Nice pub meal at Lulworth Cove made it worthwhile

Thanks for your report. We do have attendants helping ensure the smooth running of the car park and do our best to get visitors to park in an orderly fashion. We will check whether there was anything untoward affecting car parking yesterday.

Lulworth Cove & Durdle Door are beautiful parts of the Dorset coastline. The area is great for walkers & hill climbers. It was extremely windy and wet when we were there so unfortunately did not get down to Durdle Door.

Its the beautiful coast and a nice walk. We spent lot of time on beach. There are no food stalls around so I would recommend you to carry some of your stuff. Children can have fun, but beach gets steep suddenly. Its a pebble beach.More

There is roadside parking possible if you are prepared to walk the extra distance. however I don't remember the carparks at either Durdle or the cove having barriers. (might be wrong).
