England Coast Path - Portland To Lulworth Cove


31 km / 19 miles
In Dorset, the newly designated section of the England Coast Path links Portland and Lulworth Cove, mostly following on or near the South West Coast Path's existing routing, but with significant differences on the Isle of Portland. This is initially an interesting walk on Portland itself, with its quarrying history in extracting the famous stone that created many of Britain's best known buildings. Crossing the causeway that ends Chesil Beach's shingle spit, it heads along promenades in Weymouth and ends with a spectacular, undulating stretch past the Durdle Door, an unusual rock arch, into Lulworth Cove.
