Portland Bill Lighthouse

Built in 1906 to keep this stretch of the beautiful Dorset coast safe, Portland Bill Lighthouse stands 35m high. Still in working order - though now fully automatic - the Portland Bill Lighthouse can be seen at nights ensuring that no ships run afoul of the rocks. Guided tours of the lighthouse can of course be arranged and during the summer months there is a visitor centre open at the site which houses various displays on the lighthouses, wildlife, shipwrecks and the Portland stone industry which was so essential to the local economy.

A visit to Pulpit Rock, a spectacular rock formation is well advised.
