    Enjoy the one hour drive to Corfe Castle. En-route your guide will talk of the history of the Royal Manor of Portland and the seaside town of Weymouth made famous by King George III.

    Passing through the beautiful Dorset countryside, arrive at Corfe Castle. This is one of the most impressive and romantic medieval ruins in England. It was originally built by order of William the Conqueror in 1080, taking its final shape in the 14th century. Its marvellous hilltop position offers magnificent views of the surrounding countryside.

    Afterwards depart for Maiden Castle for a photo stop which is regarded by many as the finest prehistoric fort in England. Developed by a Stone Age community around 2,000 BC, it was used as a funeral mound in the Bronze Age. Despite its strength, the fort was taken by the Romans in AD 43. You will then return to Portland and your awaiting ship.
