Revisiting That UK Destination Bucketlist

Saturday, 17 August 2019

Not too long ago, I wrote a >blog post< sharing where in the UK I still wanted to visit and explore. Funnily enough, two of the places on my list were crossed off within a week.

On a hot Monday off of work, we travelled down to Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove in the early morning and had arrived by 11. The car park just above Durdle Door was already filling up pretty fast, and there were so many people already about. The walk down to Durdle Door was quite a steep one, and if it's steep on the way down, that only means one thing.. It's going to be hard work on the way back up haha. And it was! But it was so worth it. The beach is pebble, and wasn't as crowded as we had anticipated. It was so peaceful! People were jumping off of Durdle Door itself into the sea, and most people were just lounging around like we were. It was beautiful.

You can walk from Durdle Door to Lulworth Cove itself, but it involves walking down a very steep cliff side. If you psyche yourself up for the walk back up, you'll be fine. The top of the cliff gave the most beautiful views of the cove, you could see the Jurassic Coast line for miles. Although, the cove itself was as impressive (in my opinion) to photos that I had seen on Pintrest, it was still nice to take it all in, and sit with an ice cream, whilst listening to the sound of the sea wash up on the pebble beach. If you haven't visited the Jurassic coast, I would recommend you go! Especially on a warm, sunny day.

The second place on my UK bucketlist that we visited that week was St Michael's Mount, Marazion. I never realised that St Michael's Mount itself was National Trust. Being a member, this was amazing, as we all got to explore the ground free of charge. St Michael's Mount is connected to the shore by a manmade causeway, which when the tide is out, allows you to walk over to the island - pretty cool! The causeway was covered with water when we wanted to go out, so we caught a little ferry over to the island. There were so many HUGE jellyfish that had been washed up with the tide on the beach. There have been a fair few sightings of massive jellyfish off the coast of Cornwall at the moment! The grounds were incredible! The views were incredible. The sea itself was clear and turquoise. After exploring the grounds, the causeway was free of the sea, and we were able to walk along it, back to sure. St Michael's Mount is and has been one of my favourite National Trust visits.

Have you visited either places?

  1. Beautiful photos! Durdle Door has been on my bucket list for years. I love the look of St Michael's Mount - definitely adding that to my list! x

    1. They're both lovely. If you don't mind walking up or down steep hills, then Durdle Door is a must! However, I'd definitely recommend St Michael's Mount first - I've never, done or seen anything like it. It was incredible! x

  2. Beautiful photos! I haven't been to either places. I really enjoyed your post.
