A great tour round the main historic places in Portland and then on to see the lighthouse at Portland Head. Guide was excellent. Full of knowledge and with a sense of humour. Recommend you take this tour and follow up in your own time later.

We have been to Portland many times but arrived this year with our dog. We were somewhat worried about finding places dogs were welcome and the Discovery Tour exceeded our expectation in EVERY way!
