The Sea Life Tower contains a glass pod that slowly rotates as it climbs the full height of the tower, providing visitors a 360 degree view over Weymouth Bay and along both lengths of the Jurassic Coast.

 

Portland – By the long sweep of Chesil Beach, with magnificent views and Portland Castle http://www.dorsets.co.uk/Portland/  Portland offers a rugged, dramtic / Jurassic coastline and is a haven for bird watchers and nature lovers. Along with diving and rock climbing it is steeped in history. Royal MAnor and Isle of Portland. Castle ruins, coastal and inland paths. Quarries, historic gun batteries, Old Churches.

 

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.
