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
  • Worbarrow Bay
  • Tyneham
  • 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). This is a seasonal service and timetables will be published in June. 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:


Are very welcome to join us on this event but we do ask the following:

  • Please appreciate the fact that not everyone is a dog owner or lover- especially when we stop to eat
  • Please ensure you adhere to the Countryside Code at all times - see (Keeping Dogs Under Effective Control)
  • If your dog is uncontrolled and strays in open land frightening other animals or livestock, the leader is supported by the OutdoorLads board of trustees to ask you to leave the event as this is not acceptable behaviour
  • We cannot guarantee that this route is dog friendly - there may be styles to carry your dog across.
  • This will be a long/tough walk....your dog needs to have the stamina to keep up with the group. This may be an issue if it's a hot day.....bring a bowl and water for him/her.
