Portland Airport Guide

Portland has many unusual things to see and do and one of the favourites is the tour of Portland’s underground tunnel network. Used for the collection and transportation of forced crew for ships, it’s a fascinating reminder of old days. Next visit the Museum of Science and Industry where there are many hands-on exhibits plus a moored old submarine to explore and a planetarium.

There are lots of parks, both natural and man-made which are great for exploring on bike or on foot and many of the city’s people can be seen enjoying the fresh air there on warm summer days.
