The area is very popular with birdwatchers and in addition to Bill lighthouse, there are two more lighthouses, one of them being birdwatcher’s members club which you are more than welcome to join.

The abundance of walks you can find in the Isle of Portland is quite surprising when you think that the isle is only 4 miles long by 1.7 miles wide.

There are still a couple of working quarries, but two old ones are now butterfly reserves – it’s a sight not to miss.

Tout Quarry sculpture park was created with quarry's limestone which has been used to create sculptures within the quarry.

Follow the map and you will find some interesting artwork! Not only water sports are popular in the Isle of Portland, but a lot of visitors take a challenging rock-climbing day out option.

Portland Climbing have a wide range of climbing courses, from first climbing principles to advanced sport climbing coaching, from indoor to outdoor climbing sessions or refresher courses. Why not to make a trip to a beautiful seaside town of Weymouth buzzing from events throughout the year.

There’s a wide selection of shops, restaurants and cafes for you to take a break from exploring the town.

The award-winning sandy beach might attract you for the whole day just swimming and building sand castles. If you venture further East, you will find glorious Jurassic coast rocks in Durdle Door, Lulworth Cove, Kimmeridge Bay, Chapman’s Pool and West Bay sand cliffs to the East with Lyme Regis and Charmouth. Stay at Olympic Cottage with friends or family and enjoy water sports, rock-climbing or just have an enjoyable day on a beach – it’s all right at your doorstep.
