Departs From:

Blue Flag winning Weymouth Beach is consistently recognised as one of the top twenty beaches in Europe and it’s easy to see why. So why not grab your towel, a good book and head to Weymouth.

With beautiful golden sands sprinkled with deckchairs, safe shallow waters, an action packed events programme and pretty harbourside, you certainly won’t be disappointed.

The world was introduced to the Georgian grandeur of Weymouth during the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.  Weymouth’s fine seafront provided an impressive backdrop to the sailing events and captured the hearts of many!

A great day out in Weymouth

You will never be short of things to do for a family day out in Weymouth, with an abundance of natural and themed attractions for everyone to enjoy!

From sand sculptures to a magical underwater world of dazzling sea creatures, Weymouth has attractions to delight visitors of all ages!

A visit to the Nothe Fort is a must! Built by the Victorians to protect Portland Harbour – this unique attraction is a network of underground passages and is steeped in history. Not only that, it provides stunning views out towards the Isle of Portland and across Weymouth Bay.

Get active in Weymouth

Head out and enjoy the fresh sea air; there are plenty of ways to get active in Weymouth. Why not hire a bike, go on a guided cycle ride, set out on foot or horseback, hire a boat….the list goes on!

Take a stroll along the esplanade and golden sands to admire the beauty of the scenery that surrounds you. Or cycle along one of the many trails and admire the natural beauty and abundance of wildlife on offer.

Weymouth is a superb base to explore the spectacular coastal scenery on a walk or head slightly inland and you’ll discover the county’s rural charms.

Life’s a beach

Weymouth’s long arc of fine golden sand is second to none. Hours of fun can be enjoyed on the beach building sandcastles and splashing around in the clear blue sea.

Weymouth offers seaside fun by the bucket load! Children will have a smile from ear to ear as they trot along the beach on a donkey ride, and adults and children alike will be left giggling away at the antics of a traditional Punch and Judy show!

However, if you’re just after a bit of relaxation then hire yourself a deckchair, find a quiet spot and sit back to enjoy the warm sand between your toes with the sound of waves lapping in the background – bliss!

Harbourside magic

Weymouth is so much more than it’s majestic beachfront! Make sure you take a wander around Weymouth’s beautiful historic harbour during your visit. This is a great place to while away the hours and watch all the comings and goings…luxury yachts, fishing trawlers, tall ships, RNLI Lifeboats and even cross-harbour rowing ferries.

Whilst by the harbour you may be lucky enough to see the opening of Weymouth Town Bridge. The current lifting bridge was completed in 1930 and due to the number of yachts and large pleasure boats using the inner harbour, the bridge now opens on a regular daily schedule.

Why not sit back and relax with a glass of fizz from one of the harbourside bars or bistros…a great way to spend a summer’s evening!

Eating Out in Weymouth

You’ll be spoilt for choice for places to eat out in Weymouth! Whether you’re looking for fresh seafood, good old fashioned pub grub or a simple meal made with local produce, you’ll find it here!

With many pubs, restaurants and cafes now providing takeaways you can get delicious food delivered to your accommodation or to grab and go for a picnic on the beach.

Shopping by the sea

There are all sorts of shops to be found in Weymouth’s town centre, from traditional seaside rock and fudge to beachwear and books – everything you could possibly need for a day out at the beach.

Along with small independent retailers, you’ll find well known high street shops, department stores and boutiques.

And with shops specialising in fresh fish, pasties and pies, cheese, wine and more, you won’t go far without being tempted into buying some fantastic Dorset food and drink.
