-Sea Life Park & Marine Sanctuary is home to aquatic mammals and sea creatures from all over the world including penguins, large otters, turtles, crocodiles and seals. 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 house is close to lovely pubs, eateries and the quayside for food, drink and lots of crabbing. We enjoyed a wonderful week here, with super weather. Close to beautiful beaches, pirate graveyards (Ope) and fossil hunting.
