Add Tyneham Village to your Itinerary

Tyneham Village Church

Tyneham village was evacuated in December 1943 for military training during the second world war and the village has been deserted ever since, but many of the buildings survive and the Church (still used for occasional services) and School now houses excellent exhibitions about the village and villagers. Please note that the exhibitions in Tyneham School and Tyneham Church are open from 10am until 4pm when the village is open to the public.

A short walk (1 mile) from the village leads to the spectacular Worbarrow Bay which is part of the Jurassic Coast.

The village, Bay and the Lulworth Ranges are now managed by the Ministry of Defence and therefore access is limited. To find opening times for Tyneham village, Worbarrow Bay and the Range Walks, go to www.dorsetforyou.com/lulworth-range-walks.

For any further information please phone 01929 404819.

Please note access for minibuses and coaches is very restricted and must be pre-arranged.
