Dawdling at Durdle Door in Dorset

Durdle Door is a huge, natural limestone sea arch on the Dorset Coast.  It is privately owned but access is open to the public via a steep path down to the pebble beach.  Like every tourist site we have visited, it was over-whelmed with people, the parking was 4 pounds for 2 hours (minimum), and ice-creams, cups of tea, and fish and chips were available in a field at the top.  In spite of all that, it was absolutely worth seeing.  (It was accessed by a narrow, one lane road and I (me driving) encountered 3 giant tractors within the space of three minutes coming in the opposite direction.  I will be returning home with hair more grey than when I left!)
