Lighthouse
“Portland, most would admit, is a bit like marmite, you either love it or hate it, it is one big stone quarry supplying jutting out into the English Channel. But it has a rich history, many of London's landmark buildings (including St Pauls Cathedral) are made from stone quarried from Portland, formally an important Navel base and still with an active torpedo and missile testing station, there are still many active military activities on the island. The scenery is spectacular and there is a circular path around the island, with dramatic cliffs and far reaching sea views as well as an abundance of nature although because of the exposed location not many trees and those you do find will appear to have a side parting as the windy conditions. At the Bill where the lighthouse (there are actually three lighthouses) is located the seas meet and you can often see the "Race" where 7 tides meet and the seas bubble and race against each other forming large waves even on a calm day, swimming is not recommended any where along the bill with 7 knot tides you will soon be speaking French !! The Lighthouse is now open for visitors and is worth a visit, fishing is good off the rocks and exploring along the coast is fun. Portlanders have a myth …. do not mention the word "Rabbit" which are in abundance amongst the discarded quarried stone, it is considered bad luck and some take it very seriously !! Because of the location, lots of rare and interesting migrating birds, who stop off at Portland for a rest. The middle lighthouse is now a Bird Observatory and accepts visitors. Portland Bill on a stormy day is a dramatic place and not for the faint hearted. A fully grown man can find it difficult to stand when blowing a gale and to see the spray for the waves travel 100 to 200 ft high and the waves pounding against the rocks is a amazing sight but clearly keep well clear of the cliff edge and take extreme caution and care. If you find you are traveling back on a sunny day with the sunset looking promising, make sure your stop off at The Cove House Inn (its is listed in places to eat at) it is right on the beach and will give you amazing views of the sea and the sunset (make sure you look at the picture on the wall of the pub in a storm, you can just see the top of the roof) !!”

“Overlooking Portland Harbour in Dorset stands one of Henry VIII’s finest coastal forts, built in the early 1540s to protect against French and Spanish invasion. Today it provides a great day out for visitors and its audio tour, included in the admission price, tells of the castle’s 450-year history and the part it played in the First and Second World Wars. Afterwards take a stroll along the marina where you will find the Mess Deck Cafe or Boat that Rocks Restaurant. ”
