The views from the top of golden cap were indeed staggering. It was a stiff climb, but well worth it as the outlook along the magnificent coast line were wonderful. Unfortunately the car park attendant was extremely unpleasant, and rude.

Walked to the top of the Golden Cap and it’s well worth it. The views across the bays are amazing and it’s a great photo opportunity. This place is a must if you’re in the area.

Beautiful walk from Charmouth to Golden Cap and back. Weather was mixed but we were treated to excellent views from Golden Cap before the cloud came in.
