With the help of a generous grant from its Maritime Charity, Trinity House has renovated the Visitor Centre at Portland Bill Lighthouse.
Portland Bill Lighthouse Visitor Centre
The new exhibition, Dark & Light, contains a number of interactive displays and historical artefacts. The centre offers the opportunity to encounter a stormy sea journey in the exhilarating zone, “into the dark”. Visitors have the chance to climb the lighthouse and see for miles along the beautiful Dorset coastline and out to the treacherous Portland Race.
Restrictions to ascending the lighthouse tower: Children are very welcome but they must be at least 1.1 metres in height and physically capable of ascending and descending the staircases by themselves unaided.
