Durdle Door (sometimes written Durdle Dor) is a geographical wonder and possibly one of Dorset’s most iconic attractions! It’s a natural limestone arch on the Jurassic Coast near Lulworth in Dorset.
It is privately owned by the Weld family who owns 12,000 acres (50 km2) in Dorset (Lulworth Estate), it is open to the public and sits close to the South West Coast Path. The name Durdle is derived from the Old English word ‘thirl’ meaning bore or drill.
Durdle Door can be found to the west of West Lulworth on the B3070 which leaves the A352 (Wareham to Dorchester road) at Holmbridge.
