How Well Connected?

I was initially looking for a weekend away in Weymouth, however, most of the places with space were right on the front and it looked like it would be a little noisy and busy for my liking.

This lead me to Portland, however, if you're travelling via public transport how viable is Portland?

Also, is portland 'contained' enough that you'd find nice places to eat and drink or would you always have to head to weymouth in the evenings?

Hi there

There are regular bus services linking Weymouth to Portland running throughout the day. Portland has three main towns, all small, but you'll find everything you want there including pubs, shops and places to dine. I'd rather stay on Portland anyway, there's quite a lot of history to see and of course, Portland Bill is well worth a couple of hours.

Cool, thanks for the feedback (you seem to be replying to most of my posts mate! cheers!).

Looking at the sort of places Portland did look lile a more chilled/refined area vs Weymouth. There's obviously a lot more places to choose from in Weymouth though..
