If you are travelling by car, once you have reached Dorchester, follow the signs for Weymouth.   Once you are on the Weymouth Road (A354) when you reach the first roundabout, take the second exit onto the Weymouth Relief Road (admiring the ‘mushrooms’!).  Again at the next roundabout, take the second exit still on the A354 moving into the right hand lane and as you approach the next roundabout go into the middle lane and take the second exit.

At the next roundabout take the first exit and continue straight through the first set of traffic lights - by now you should have Weymouth’s harbour on your left.  At the end of the harbour continue straight through the next set of traffic lights heading up a hill and again at the top of the hill go straight at the traffic lights.  Again you will come to more traffic lights in a dip - go straight on.

Continue and when you reach the next roundabout, take the first exit onto Portland Road (you will be able to see the Isle of Portland now!).  Carry on straight through the traffic lights (Dowsett Garage on the right) and at the roundabout leading onto The Causeway, take the second exit.

You should now be approaching Portland and will be able to see the marina which hosted the sailing events for the London 2012 Olympics.  You will also be able to see the harbour which is one of the largest man-made harbours in the world.

Continue across the causeway until you reach the bottom of Portland (Victoria Square) and take the second exit.  Keep slightly to the left and follow the road up the hill - all the way up the hill - and admire the views!  At the top of the hill take the second exit (Portland Heights Hotel is situated on your left) and continue along (past the garage on your right) and take the first turning to the left into Grove Road.

Carry along and just past the playing fields on the right, turn left into the car park of Portland Utd.

Plenty of parking at no cost!
