Golden Cap

Between Seatown and Charmouth DT6

There are two routes up the Golden Cap, the Dorset coast’s highest cliff, whose brilliant outcrop of auburn sandstone is crowned with gorse. Indeed, it’s the highest point on the south coast and the views from here are fantastic – you can see as far as Dartmoor on a clear day. From Charmouth, it’s a lovely three-mile walk along the steep coastal path to the headland of Golden Cap, though you should check with the Charmouth Heritage Coast Centre before setting off, as parts of the coastal path are closed periodically due to landslips. Alternatively, there’s a shorter (around two miles), steeper path to the Cap from the hamlet of Seatown (again check the condition of the path before setting off), just under a mile from the A35 (turn off at Chideock). There’s little to Seatown, save a pretty beach, some good walks and a great pub, the Anchor.
