Portland Walk is a shopping centre in Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria, England. Constructed in 1998 on the site of the former Forshaw Street, it was designed as a modern extension to Dalton Road; Barrow's principal shopping district. Barrow Indoor Market is also located adjacent to the southern entrance.[1] Portland Walk has a total retail floor area of around 19,000 m2 (200,000 sq ft) and contains over 30 stores and services.[2] The complex is entirely open-air despite frequent proposals to cover it with a roof.[3] A 500-space multi-storey car park provides direct access.

Portland Walk is anchored by one department store - Debenhams. Although every building within consists of two storeys, only Debenhams, River Island, Topshop, Topman and Waterstones utilise both levels as sales floor space. Amongst other national retailers with a presence in Portland Walk are Boots, The Body Shop, Clarks, EE, Game, Goldsmiths, JD Sports, The Officers Club, Pandora and Thorntons.
