Alright, so I have a list which consists of places I want to visit and Durdle Door was one of them. Durdle Door is a natural limestone arch on the Jurassic Coast, West Lulworth in Dorset, England. One astonishing fact about Durdle Door is and it is privately owned by the Weld family, WHAT??YESS!! I KNOW RIGHT?
Owning this beautiful limearch is a dream,right? Anyway, moving on, visiting this place is a whole-day affair. We had to walk quite a bit to finally reach the beach . So if you like hiking this would be perfect for you. I quickly went for a dip in the ocean as soon as I reached there. HOLY GOD! This is cold is what I said the moment I went in, because of course it’s England. I didn’t really expect the water to be warm-warm but somewhat warm would have been nice. But, then I just thought I might not come back here again so let’s just jump in. So, that’s what I did.
Yes, I did adapt to the temperature a bit and it was quite beautiful. As I always say, it was serene and calm while I was in there. All I could see was endless bluish-green water glistening in the sun. So, if you want to be there in a sunny day, this would be perfect.
We took a cab from Weymouth as we missed the bus, and it costed us around £30. Bus X54 from Price Regent hotel towards Poole goes to Durdle Door and takes around an hour. But, this bus service is available every 2 hours so plan ahead. Also, take your own food and drinks as there is no food stall on the beach. There are food stalls near the car park space which is 20 mins walk plus it’s expensive. Drop me pictures if you ever visit there, would love to see it.
So, that’s about it. See ya later x
