Area details

Portland Bill

Portland Bill is the most famous part of Portland and has three lighthouses. One is now a holiday cottage, one is the bird observatory and one is actually a lighthouse. The lighthouse is open to the public on certain days and is well worth a look round. The bird observatory is positioned well as Portland, and Portland Bill especially is a haven for birds. Other attractions include Pulpit Rock, the blow hole, passing whales and dolphins and so much more - just make time for a visit.

Although many walkers make Portland Bill their end destination it actually works very well as a starting point. Head north-east along the coast to the beach at Church Ope and then then up past Pensylvania Castle to Portland Museum. Or head north-west, again along the coast, to Westcliff and stunning views across Lyme Bay as you walk along the cliff tops.


Although there are few houses at the Bill there is an excellent choice for food. The Lobster Pot is right next to the lighthouse and is open all day serving breakfasts, lunch, afternoon teas and dinners. They also have a kiosk serving food and ice creams and a shop. The large grassy area also makes it an excellent place for picnics.
