How to find us

The Centre is located on the pay and display car park just off the A354 between Weymouth and Portland. Approaching from the north, follow signs to Portland. About half a mile after you cross Ferrybridge at the bottom of Wyke Regis you will see the Centre on the right-hand side of the road. Move to the middle lane then turn into the car park. Take the left-hand lane around the bushes. Park your car, get a ticket from the machine, then come on in and see us.

If you come by bus you will need to catch a Portland bus (service number 1 or X1)and get off at the stop at Ferrybridge. Cross the road with care, it is a very busy road. Then enjoy the views of the Fleet Lagoon and Chesil Beach as you walk the half mile to the Centre.

  Visitor centre The Visitors Centre has panoramic views of the Lower Fleet and Chesil Beach.
