Cruises from Portland
Portland Harbour, dating back for thousands of years, is located beside the Isle of Portland off Dorset on the south coast of England. It is home to one of the largest man-made harbours in the world. Today the harbour is a popular location for wind surfing, diving and sailing, and it hosted most sailing events in the 2012 Olympic Games. It is also world-renowned for its Portland-stone that is quarried here, and has been used world-wide for many well-known buildings, such as the United Nations Building in New York.
Many of the quarries here are owned by the crown as Portland is a Royal Manor.
