How to find Lulworth Castle



Welcome To The Most Beautiful Castle In The South

The Castle is open daily Sunday – Friday (closed Saturdays and occasionally on other days) between 10.30am and 4pm. Last entry one hour before closing. 

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. Ravaged by fire in 1929, it has been partly restored in a pioneering partnership with English Heritage.

Climb the tower for spectacular panoramic views of the Purbeck countryside and towards the Jurassic Coast. Visit the C18th Roman Catholic Chapel and the C15th Church of St Andrew.

With extensive parkland, woodland walks, a children’s playground, the spacious grounds are yours to enjoy, walk the dog (please keep dogs on leads) or enjoy a picnic. The recently opened Castle Tearoom is a great spot to enjoy delicious homemade cakes, cream teas and to buy a souvenir of your visit.

Pay & Display parking gives access to the park and grounds, with a separate admission charge for the Castle (children under 4 free).

The Castle is closed on Saturdays for weddings and at other times during the year. Please check opening times here, before you travel. Details on ADMISSION prices can be found here.
