ideas of what to do in Portland

Our ship, Ryndam, docks in Portland on May 2, 2014. What is there to do there? Any suggestions for tours? Places to go? Pubs to eat/drink at?

There are nice walks and a lighthouse you can visit.

Where exactly does the ship dock? Tender?

There are bus services into Weymouth which is a pleasant seaside town.

Portland is on the Jurassic Coast - a beautiful area, but you would need to take an organised trip or hire a car to see much of this in one day. Where are the organised tours going?

I would agree, however the original poster is from the US and may have got it wrong, hence why he has never returned here.

No, he also posted on the Cotswold forum asking for information about spending five days there. Lack of common courtesy is possibly why the OP didn't come back.

He hasn't been back on either thread since his first posts, obviously got the info he wanted and couldn't be ar$ed to say thanks to those who have helped him out.

At least by never expecting a "thank you", we are rarely disappointed....
