Displays include a walkthrough ocean tank, rainforest and reef and kids will love the interactive rock pool, feeding times and shows.

Formally designed to protect this important coastal settlement from invasion, the Nothe Fort offers stunning views over Portland and Weymouth harbours. There’s also a number of educational and intriguing exhibitions just for children.

The property itself was well laid out and spacious with a light and airy feel. The kitchen was well appointed as was the whole property with videos, plenty of books and board games for the evenings. There was even a selection of buckets and spades and crab lines for the kids.
