Weymouth is one of the south coast’s most popular holiday destinations. Visitors have been heading to this lively beach resort since 1789, when King George III took his first royal dip and put the town on the map.
Weymouth’s Georgian seafront is a picturesque backdrop to a long stretch of golden sand and sparkling sea. Charming and full of character, the resort boasts many nostalgic British seaside traditions including Punch and Judy, donkey rides, a merry-go-round and colourful deckchairs.
What to do
Beyond the beach you can discover nature reserves, museums, numerous shops and restaurants and even a restored Victorian fort. The area is rich in things to do that will interest the whole family. And the best part? The vast majority of attractions are within walking distance!
