A demanding hike from Durdle Door to Corfe Castle along the South West Coast path.

We will take in some of the best bits of the Dorset Jurassic coastline including:

  • Durdle Door
  • Lulworth Cove
  • Fossil Forest
  • Worbarrow Bay
  • Tyneham Village
  • Kimmeridge Bay
  • Chapmans Pool
  • Square & Compass
  • Corfe Castle

This is a linear hike: Start Durdle Door, End Corfe Castle

You will need take responsibility for making your own way to/from the start/end points

This is a demanding hike: There are few options to shorten or bale out once started, you should ensure a high level of fitness before embarking.

The Purbeck Breezer route 30 runs a service from Swanage to Dorchester (via Woodyhyde, Corfe Castle & Durdle Door). The 09:30 from Swanage (09:46 Corfe Castle) arrives at Durdle Door (B3700) at 10:36. Group 'all day roam' tickets are available, if staying at Woodyhyde see event leader who will organise groups tickets to Durdle Door. 

Make a weekend of it? There are two events this weekend, why not sign up for both!

If doing both events you might like to stay at a campsite, hostel or B&B nearby, options include:
