Kimmeridge Bay lies within the Purbeck Marine Wildlife Reserve and boasts great rockpooling. Make sure to look at the stone for fossils - just please don't break the rocks as fossil hunting and collecting is prohibited here. Check tide times before visiting as tides come up very high in the bay - visit at low tide to get the most out of your visit and be able to walk around the bay. Parking £5 per car.

Built in the C17th, this magnificent building is steeped in history. Originally built as a hunting lodge to entertain aristocracy and royalty, it was for centuries the family seat of the Weld family, the current owners of the Lulworth Estate. Be sure to check online opening times as they do host weddings and private events which can mean the castle is closed to the public at those times.
