The Isle of Portland: Visit the southernmost point of delightful Dorset

For the most epic views of the Dorset coastline, climb 153 steps to the top of the famous Portland Bill lighthouse. At 41m, it’s not something those with a fear of heights should tackle!

The iconic red and white striped landmark (which is now a museum) can be seen for miles and first shone in 1906 helping ships to navigate their way around the rough waters of the English Channel.

The Isle of Portland, on which the lighthouse sits, is connected to the mainland via Chesil Beach and this craggy landscape attracts birdwatchers keen to spot rare wildlife. If feathered friends float your boat, don’t forget your binoculars.

When it’s time to stop for a bite to eat, sit down at a table inside the Lobster Pot next door to the lighthouse. It’s been open for 60 years so we’re guessing it knows a thing or two about feeding hungry crowds!

You won’t be surprised that seafood regularly features on the menu and the freshest crabs are always catch of the day. Cakes more your thing? A traditional Dorset cream tea is ready and waiting…
