Durlston Castle is a must-see, whatever the weather and was voted Best Heritage Project in the 2012 National Lottery Awards.

Durlston offers a great free day out on the Jurassic Coast: fun displays for all the family, rooftop views, a gallery for art, science and performance, seventhwave café and shop. Durlston is a countryside paradise with sea-cliffs, wildflower meadows and woodland. With views, trails, the Great Globe, wildflowers, bird-life or the 34 species of butterfly, there’s always something new to see.

A varied events programme runs all year. The Castle is open daily from 10am. Free entry, parking charges apply.

What our guests say

  • Very peaceful Park

    The wildlife is stunning, we were visited by the ducks on a regular basis which was lovely. Our visit was very enjoyable and we will definitely be back in the future!

  • 5 out of 5 isn't enough!

    This is simply our favorite touring park along the south coast. The location couldn't be better with views to die for and an abundance of fresh sea air. The park is spic and span and extremely well kept with very friendly staff.

  • Best holiday ever!

    This is by far the best Holiday Park I have been to. The views are breath taking with easy access to the beach and nice coastal walks to West Bay. If you're looking for a relaxing holiday in a stunning location, then this is the place to come.

  • A little bit of heaven!

    Golden Cap is a little bit of heaven. The views are awesome, right next to the sea. It's all relaxed and low key just how we like it.

  • Fantastic Park

    10 out of 10 is not enough for this Holiday Park. We have been here 3 times and we love it more and more every time. The park has all you need, with some pitches overlooking the sea and a great restaurant.

  • Lovely tranquil campsite

    The location was great as we could easily walk to the village or local beaches through the beautiful countryside. I would recommend this campsite to families for a peaceful and safe stay.
