Weymouth is perfect for a traditional seaside vacation, in the sense where the beach is the main focal point. Hosting the sailing events in the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, many fell in love with Weymouth’s Georgian charm, and many relaxed and watched the action from the fantastic golden sands of Weymouth Beach.
For seaside attractions, there’s plenty for all ages. Weymouth Sea Life and Adventure Park is always popular with families. Discover more of life under the waves and the species that inhabit the watery depths. Walk through the under the ocean tunnel and enjoy thrilling rides! What better way to take in the epic scenery of the Jurassic Coast than with The Jurassic Skyline, which will lift you to a height of 53m and rotate to give you a 360 degree view!
Nothe Fort is a fort built in the 1800s as part of a Royal Navy base. You don’t have to be a military enthusiast to enjoy your visit. It’s a great day out for all the family with lots to see and explore. Afterwards you can take a walk through the beautiful Nothe Gardens, that overlooks both Weymouth and Portland harbours.
At Weymouth Beach there is always plenty of activity, such as Punch & Judy, donkey rides, lively events such as the beach volleyball championships, live music and free summer firework displays. The views of the bay are spectacular, and the water is shallow and pleasant for safe swimming.
