The picturesque Arch Durdle-Dor

Speaking of the Jurassic coast, it is worth mentioning such a picturesque place as Durdle-Dore. This natural limestone arch is a popular tourist attraction on the English Channel coast in Dorset. Such unusual gates appeared as a result of the natural effects of waves on limestone rocks. I suggest you enjoy the pictures of stunning landscapes surrounding the arch.

This stunning arch is the most famous place on the coast and belongs to the Weld family, whose ownership includes 50 sq. Km. Dorset coast. The name “Durdle” comes from the Old English word “ground”, which means a drill or a drilled hole. Steep steps descend the slope for 100 meters, where in addition to the arch you can see massive boulders in the water.

The passage through Durdle-Dor is especially popular among swimmers and yachtsmen. Scenic views open up when you arrive at a beautiful crescent-shaped bay, which at one end is directly adjacent to the majestic arch. This wonder of nature is included in the list of the most beautiful natural arches, which you can admire in a separate collection on LifeGlobe.

The landscapes around Durdle-Dor have been used in some films. “Wilde” (1997) with Stephen Fry in the lead role, “My Awful Nanny” with Emma Thompson in the lead role, and “Away from the Distracted Crowd” 1967 are among them. In addition, the arch has repeatedly appeared in various videos of famous musicians.
