Hi , it does not appear to be on a bus route. Suggest train to Weymouth and a taxi to Rufus Castle ( the castle is a ruin, its more a place for the view and small beach). The Portland Museum is right by it but this is not open on a Saturday. Also St Georges Church A couple of miles away is not to be missed, As too is Porland Bill and Lighthouse and the Lighthouse Tour.
