That type of hard steel remains in the bay to the east,referred to as Person O'War Bay wherever it's been eroded because of ocean level though it is exposed at minimal tide.

 

The steel can be achieved in two ways one from Lulworth Cove in the east nevertheless that is using a really high footpath which many people could find challenging.However if you are fit then you can park our car in the Lulworth car park then go west to Durdle door.The views are spectacular.

If you wish to view the doorway from the water side there is a guided tour applying Kayaks.You book a kayak at Lulworth Cove are led along the coast to the door.There are different what to see along the way such other smaller stone arches which remain being formed.Only from the ocean part of the shore may this be seen.The best time to get could be April to September.
