    Lulworth – 6 Quirky Facts

    1. Ghost Village
      Tyneham Village was requisitioned by the War Office during the Second World War in 1943. With little notice the villagers were ordered to pack their belongings and move out, many being rehomed in nearby Wareham. Despite promises from the government, the residents were never allowed home and the village became devoid of life, except for training troops. It still stands to this day, an empty, slightly eerie location. The army is still garrisoned at nearby Lulworth Camp.
    2. Durdle Door & Lulworth Cove
      Two of the most iconic features on the entire British coastline, they are within walking distance of each other and attract over 400,000 visitors each year. Durdle Door is the famous archway, carved by the sea into the natural Portland Stone, the archway stands 200 feet tall and is around 10,000 years old. Lulworth Cove is a perfect horseshoe shape, again created by the sea, the shore breaks the power of the waves making the beach the perfect place for swimming or enjoying the Dorset sunshine. Although with that many visitors, it can get a little crowded at times.
    3. Jurassic Coast
      In 2001 a 95 mile stretch of coastline from Studland in Dorset to Exmouth, Devon became England’s first UNESCO World Heritage site. Attracting half a million visitors each year, the area is famed for its fossils (‘she sells sea shells’ is actually written about fossil hunter Mary Anning who lived in the area). It is the only place in the world where 185 years of history can be seen sequentially, the natural angle of the cliffs and rocks revealing a journey through time from 65 to 250 million years ago.
    4. Petrified!
      Formed at the end of the Jurassic era (a mere 140 million years ago!), the remains of a petrified forest stands not far from Lulworth Cove, within the National Park. Trees measuring up to 2 metres wide have been turned to stone complete with their original rings, gnarled bark and even some foliage can be seen. Although you might want to stay on your toes as the forest officially lies within the military firing range!
    5. Lulworth Castle
      Originally designed by Inigo Jones in 1609, from the original foundations laid by Sir Thomas Howard, the castle has had some colourful names pass through. Not long after it was built family life in the castle was interrupted by the English Civil War and it was sized and garrisoned by Parliamentarian forces. It came into the ownership of the Weld family who during the 18th century employed the Bastard Brothers, renowned architects from Blandford Forum who set about rejuvenating the by now ancient building. It was also used as a home by the French royal family following both revolutions. Since 1641 the castle has remained in the hands of the same family, with nearly 400 years of family history tied up in the castle.
    6. Camp Bestival
      One of the biggest UK music festivals, the event takes place in the grounds of Lulworth Castle and has attracted some of the biggest names in music. Rock, pop, grime, jazz, indie, dance, RnB, all get air time with huge acts performing, There’s also theatre, TV personalities, cookery, poetry, wellness, authors, kids TV presenters and performances, camping, glamping, stamping and all round good times.
