Upwey station is half way between Dorchester and Weymouth.

There is a station as well as a marina at Weymouth.

Several A roads lead into Dorchester, Weymouth and Bridport.  The Ridgeway's countryside and villages can be accessed through a network of small country lanes, bridleways and footpaths making the area an excellent place to explore by foot, bike or horseback.
