Lulworth Castle, Chapel and grounds are CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC on FRIDAYS & SATURDAYS for weddings.
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. 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 Castle Tearoom is open for take away refreshments and souvenirs.
