Portland Castle - English Heritage
Discover history where it happened. Take the free audio tour at Portland Castle to hear how Henry VIII built this fort to protect the harbour from invasion and how the soldiers would have lived, worked and played during the past 450 years - great fun in all weathers. Or explore the romantic ruin of Sherborne Old Castle, partly destroyed by two Civil War sieges, and once owned by Sir Walter Raleigh. Now a haven for wildlife and birds, it is a perfect picnic spot on a sunny day. Both dog friendly. Tea room at Portland Castle.

OPEN: 2016
Daily from 25th March to 31st October.
