Portland Plateau

Attraction details
Owner description: A varied 4.7 mile walk classed as Moderate along the South West Coast Path as it heads along the east coast of Portland, passing great scenery, historical forts and old quarry workings. Many of the paths around Portland Bill are accessible for powered wheelchair users and rugged pushchairs. The first ½ mile of this route follows a level wide path, but after this becomes more varied with some steep and uneven sections before reaching Church Ope Cove. From the cove to Portland Heights the path is relatively level apart from one steep climb.

Spending a week at Preston we were out and about so decided to visit portland bill, hmm, not a great deal there, lovely views and a nice walk on the common with the dogs but couldn't visit the lighthouse because of the dogs and the fact we both wore sandals,lol, which are not allowed because of the steps I suppose. Cafe has lovely views but seeing as they have a "captive" audience, it is quite pricy.

Portland plateau offers a nice vantage point to enjoy great views of the sea, the Chesil beach and the adjoining village. It also provides a fantastic trekking route along the perimeter of the plateau with nice sculptures along the way. Highly recommended.

Visit Portland Castle. It might not be the most attractive, but it is really interesting and boasts wonderful views across Weymouth Bay. The café is also great.

We spent the whole day on Portland, you can take a bus to nearly the top then, walk to Portland Bill, have a cup of tea, then walk back via the costal footpaths, there is so much to enjoy.
