East Lulworth's history is dominated by Lulworth Castle and the Weld Family. Much of the land in and around East Lulworth and neighbouring West Lulworth and many properties are still owned by the Weld Estate. The Welds were staunch Roman Catholics and they built the first Roman Catholic chapel in the grounds of Lulworth Castle. Lulworth Castle suffered a disasterous fire on 29 August 1929 leaving an empty shell. After standing as a ruin for nearly seventy years, the exterior was restored by English Heritage and made watertight, and the interior now hosts exhibitions and is licensed as a wedding venue.
Past occupants of Lulworth Castle have included: Sir Robert Peel, the Duke of Gloucester, the deposed King of France.
