It is a little castle ruin, with lovely little garden in front. There is no ticket needed, access is free, you can walk around and enter it inside. The views are really great! I parked my car along the street without a problem, parking is free. A short visit would be sufficient.

We randomly came across Sands-foot Castle, and soon found it to be the perfect hidden gem. We enjoyed a lovely little family picnic with beautiful views that we were able to enjoy and explore. We had been trying to find the perfect spot to fly our kite and this was the place. It’s perfect for adults, families and young children with plenty of space to walk and run around. There is a little cafe and toilets onsite too which is lovely, and reasonably priced. The only one recommendation I would say is go early or you’ll never be able to find a parking space unless you live locally or enjoy a good walk.

So google says this castle is 30 minutes walk away from around the Quay and harbour area of weymouth....what google doesn't tell you is that its UP HILL a LOT of up hill to get there!
We discovered this as we got to the first steep hill then levelled off and got to another hill. We are a family of walkers but It was a bit of a slog in this heatwave also pushing a buggy with a sleeping 3yr old in but it was worth it, to get there.
The castle is so cool, the views around are beautiful and the gardens there are so vibrant and beautiful. You can no longer walk around the ruin but just seeing it is fantastic. It's very peaceful there, and there's a small Café with a seating area outside and a single unisex toilet.
Good news if you are walking is that it's mostly downhill on the way back..win!!

Beautiful area to have a picnic overlooking the sea and with the castle there. You cannot access the castle, unfortunately it is eroding into the sea, but it’s history and ruins are there to be appreciated. Pretty gardens with seats and a little cafe and a toilet. Free to visit, parking along the road.

We walked along the Rodwell Trail to here. Its beautiful. It has lovely gardens & plenty of places to sit on the grass on a sunny day. It also has some beautiful views.
The Cafe is lovely & reasonably priced.
I did find it a shame that some people were not keeping an eye on their children & were letting their children climb up the sides of the walls of the castle & through bits which have been fenced off.

Perfect place to visit, either with your own picnic or making use of the cabin on site that serves coffees, Ice Creams, light snacks etc. Great outside space for all to enjoy - whether it’s alone with a book, exploring the small castle, letting the children burn off some energy running around or taking the dog for a walk. Beautiful views in all directions. Firm favourite and ‘go to’ especially when the sun comes out

We stopped here for 15 minutes purely for a photo opportunity. My 9 year old enjoyed the ruins just a shame a few locals seem to think the castle ruins are a local skate park so we found ourselves dodging bikes and scooters. Took the photos we wanted and left. There was a small cafe which seemed popular but was too chilly for us to be sat outside so we headed back to our caravan for lunch instead.

A lovely place to have a coffee in the café and chill out over the views of the bay. Slight down side is the parking is very restricted

We discovered this by accident on a recent trip to Portland and spent a few hours one morning having coffee and cake from the little cafe and enjoying the beautiful views, gardens and castle ruins. Really enjoyed it and will go again if we are in the area.
