Durdle Door - The Natural Limestone Arch

Durdle Door - The Natural Limestone Arch

During my stay in London, when I was looking to explore the natural wonders of UK, the Durdle Door popped up in my mind. I didn’t want to miss this place in my travel list. One fine day, I left London in the morning and by the time I reached the nearest base point, it was afternoon. However the chilling weather of UK making me shiver for some time. After a short 20 minutes walk from the nearest base point, I glanced the first view of this iconic natural arch.

I was thrilled looking at this natural wonder.  Durdle Door is named as ONE OF THE NATURAL WONDERS OF UK. This was created when the sea pierced through the Portland limestone around million years ago and now stood solid with approximately 200 feet in height.

The chilling weather made me wear jacket all the time and ice-cold ocean preventing anyone to get in to sea.  Walking around and capturing the iconic Durdle Door in mind and camera, I headed towards Lulworth cave. This demands  2 miles of walk from the durdle door on the coastal trial. But beautiful landscapes makes anyone feel to be fortunate. Lulworth is famous for it's unique geology and landforms including the Lulworth Crumple and Stair Hole.

The panoramic views and crystal clear water on this stretch of the UNESCO World heritage site made me feel refreshed.

 If you are planning London/ UK trip and if you are a nature admirer, then DURDLE DOOR should be in your top priority of must see places.
