About Durlston Country Park

This country park is also a nature reserve and forms part of a Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site. It covers 280 acres of cliff tops, coastal limestone downlands, meadows, hedgerows and woods, providing numerous habitats for a wide range of wildlife. Amongst others, here you can see wildflowers (notably orchids), butterflies and many seabirds – particularly in autumn, when migrating birds stop off here. Dolphin-watching and walks along this stretch of the South West Coast Path are especially popular. The ‘castle’ houses a visitor centre with educational facilities, including a live webcam trained on the seabirds on the cliffs below.
