About the neighbourhood
Portland is an explorer’s island; rock climbing, abseiling, diving, kayaking and walking for the sporty and museums, castles, lighthouses and sculptures for those looking to discover a bit of history and heritage…and all on a tiny island! For what to do on the island, visit our website. Portland is thought of as an island although this isn’t wholly correct in the true sense of the word as it’s reached over a causeway from Chesil Beach. Just 4 miles long by a mile and a half wide at its broadest point, this plate of Jurassic limestone is tilted from north to south. This means that if you are on the elevated northern side of the island you are rewarded with stunning views across the Chesil, Portland Harbour & Weymouth.
Getting around
Local busses can get you to all the interesting places to visit. (1 way £2:50/ day ticket £4)
