Lulworth Cove

Lulworth Online is a Lulworth Cove website designed to enhance your experience of Lulworth Cove and this beautiful area.

Monkey World

Set amongst the 65 acres of Dorset woodland, Monkey World provides sanctuary for over 230 primates from 15 different species. Set up in 1987 by Jim Cronin to provide abused Spanish beach chimps with a permanent, stable home, it today works in conjunction with foreign governments from all over the world to stop the illegal smuggling of apes out of Africa and Asia. Play areas and eateries are available.

Swanage Railway

The Swanage Railway offers a more intensive heritage steam and diesel timetable train service than virtually any other preserved railway. Steam and diesel galas, family fun day events, plus regular evening dining services complement themed events such as our highly popular Santa Special trains during the run up to Christmas. Easy parking at Norden Station for visitors with cars enhances the experience of a unique journey through six miles of beautiful Dorset scenery.

Fresh from a £16m investment in new exhibitions and facilities, and with almost 200 vehicles on display in 6 large halls, you will come face-to-face with tanks that have seen action in all the major wars of the 20th century.
