Walk With a View…

Skyworks worked with Julia to make the Railway Walks TV series. You can find more about their stunning aerial filming on the World from Above page here.

Weymouth Railway Walk
This walk is an ideal platform for delving into the fascinating stories surrounding the line and the surprising history of Portland harbour.

Carpark: Beach Car park – Preston Rd, Weymouth DT3 6HS

Weymouth is arguably England’s original seaside resort. The backstreets of Weymouth might seem like an unlikely spot to explore this railway history but there was once a line that ran south from Weymouth and across to the unique coastal features of Chesil Beach and Portland.

There are great coastal views throughout this walk.
