Our second visit here and never disappointed. It is such a wonderful place with information boards in each property detailing who lived there prior to the MOD evacuation in 1943. A wonderful walk to the beach from the car park provides great views over to...More

Very interesting village to stroll around, plenty of parking and only a £2 donation. Lots of ruining s, but the best part is the Old School house, felt very creepy but in a good way. The church is lovely too. Some nice grounds to stretch...More

Reading the history of the place makes you feel sad but the old photos, buildings and information plaques bring the place to life. The schoolroom especially is very well preserved and nostalgic. The car park suggested charge of £2 is very reasonable, the short walk...More

Tyneham is a very interesting place to visit as its part of our history. The ride to get there over The Ranges from Lulworth or Corfe Castle has magnificent views. Once at Tyneham there is a lovely walk to Warbarrow Bay. Well worth a visit.

Tyneham lies at the end of quite a long winding country road, with some rather tight passing spaces for cars. Thankfully there is a large free car park (there is a box for donations on the wall), but it’s quite bumpy, surfaced with gravel and...More

Poignant to walk round ruins of requisitioned village from WW2. Need a dry day as not much cover. Brilliant information and displays in church, school and farm. Could do with a site map eg where toilets are, and layout of various buildings. Would have been...More

Beautiful visit to this deserted village. Upsetting to hear of the history of it. People losing their homes for the promise of a return which never came!! It would be nice to hear what happened to the families and where they were moved on to.

Daughter wanted to visit after reading a children's book about a similar fictional village. Wasn't expecting great things but was very surprised to find how much to be seen. Information on many houses, school and church. Felt so poignant and frozen in time. As it's...More

Probably not as those will be range days. Sometimes it is open during range days if not in firing area. Best thing is to check lulworth ranges firing and access on google
