Portland Bill is also just 1 mile away and Weymouth is 4 miles. There are a selection of quality pubs and restaurants in Portland itself.

Other possible activities include diving and sailing in Portland Harbour or horse riding along the coast. A few of the nearby tourist attractions include Portland Castle, which is well worth a visit, Sea World in Weymouth and Monkey World.
