Durdle Door is a famous stone arch located on the Lulworth Estate in Dorset that is open to the public. It is an extremely popular tourist attraction. It is also part of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site. The name is derived from the Old English word thirl, which means bore or drill. It has been created by the sea eroding through the limestone rock.

You can view the attraction from the cliffs above or from the shingle beach below. The beach has been commended for its excellent water clarity. It is also a quiet secluded cove perfect for a picnic. There are also lots of different hiking routes you can take along the Jurassic Coast. It is also stunning at night and during the sunset, they also offer light shows to see the attraction lit up at night.
