Just a beautiful little park with a castle attached! As you take the coastal walk from Weymouth to Portland you come across this lovely little place overlooking Weymouth Bay. Well worth a visit and an excellent place for a picnic

Had lunch here. Poor menu with preferred choice not available. Relatively poor portion sizes and not particularly warm. Good coffee. Poor seating with only shade available under a tree. Beware the toilet !!

The gardens are beautifully kept and the view is spectacular. And there's a little kiosk to get an ice cream or hot chocolate depending on the weather,
