The Isle of Portland is located on the south coast of Dorset and forms part of the World Heritage Coastline, known as the ‘Jurassic Coast’. Famous for centuries as the home of Portland Stone (used by Sir Christopher Wren on St Paul’s Cathedral and numerous other London churches), Portland is now evolving into a centre for leisure activities including fishing, diving, bird watching, rock climbing, walking and a variety of water sports, including sailing at the newly opened Weymouth & Portland National Sailing Academy, venue for the sailing events at the 2012 Olympic Games.
Portland is made up of several village communities which together boast a range of amenities including shops, health centres, primary and secondary schools.
Located on the South Dorset coast, Weymouth is the focal point of Weymouth Bay with its sweep of sand and shale beaches. Weymouth offers a range of brand name High Street shops, supermarkets, schools and health centres. The leisure and entertainment facilities of a bustling and popular resort town make Weymouth and the surrounding area an enviable place to live.
