This distance calculator is designed to help you plan your walk - simply visit the link below or click on the image and follow the instructions in order to create your own bespoke walk along the South West Coast Path.
If you are walking the South West Coast Path in Dorset, please note that there are two alternative routes in the Weymouth area of Dorset - a coastal route through Weymouth and around the Isle of Portland, or a shorter inland ridgeway alternative. The distance calculator assumes that you are walking the coastal route. If you plan to follow the inland route you should deduct 19.25miles (31km) from the total shown. If you plan to walk through Weymouth but to omit the Isle of Portland loop, deduct 13.2miles (21.2km).
