Great Wessex Way - Portland Bill Circular


14 km / 9 miles
An extra days walking on the Great Wessex Way that gives a very different view of Dorset. Inland Portland cannot be described as pretty but it more than makes up for this with far reaching costal views and quarrying history in abundance. If following the main Great Wessex Way, a frequent bus service will take you to Portland from any of Upwey, Dorchester or Weymouth.
