The southernmost point of Dorset, the Isle of Portland is a limestone tied island connected to Weymouth by Chesil Beach and the A354 Portland Beach Road over the Fleet Lagoon. Central to the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site, Portland is particularly famous for its Portland Stone, which has been used in architecture including St Paul’s Cathedral and the United Nations Headquarters and continues to be quarried today.
Between Portland and Weymouth lies Portland Harbour, one of the largest man-made harbours in the world. Now a civilian port, Portland Harbour was built between 1848 and 1905 as a Royal Navy base, and played important roles during both World Wars. The waters between Portland and Weymouth have been credited by the Royal Yachting Association as being the best in Northern Europe. Weymouth & Portland National Sailing Academy was chosen as a host venue of the 2012 Olympic Games, and continues to regularly host local, national and international sailing events.
Inland, Portland also has much to offer. Middle Stone Age human habitation of the island is evidenced at Culverwell Mesolithic Site, and Portland Castle – built under orders from King Henry VIII in 1539 – is one of the best preserved from this period. At the southernmost tip of the island is Portland Bill, home to Grade II listed Portland Bill Lighthouse. Still in use today, this locally famous, red and white landmark helps passing ships navigate the headland and the tumultuous waters of Portland’s tidal race. The island’s coastline and disused quarries have been designated as Sites of Special Scientific Interest thanks to their varied wealth of flora and fauna. Chesil Beach is one of only two places in Britain where the Scaly Cricket can be found, and high up on the sea cliffs grows Portland Sea Lavender, one of the UK’s rarest plants unique to Portland.
With a distinct character and customs of its own, Portland represents a unique way of life offering much to explore, a variety of small, historic, village-like communities to choose from and views that are almost unrivalled in Dorset.
