We have a host of activities in Weymouth and its surrounding area to suit every taste and budget – from boating and diving to breath-taking scenic cycling and walking routes.
Maybe you’d prefer to take things a bit easier, in which case a relaxing day in Weymouth Bay is just the job. Here you can experience a charming and almost bygone era of donkey rides, Punch & Judy and the calm waters of the bay itself, while The Sea Life Centre is virtually on our door-step and boasts a dazzling array of marine life.
Venturing further afield, Portland Bill – with its rugged coastline and historic lighthouse – is only a 20-minute drive away and the simply stunning Lulworth Cove is just 30 minutes from us by car.
Heading west, Abbotsbury Subtropical Gardens plus the swannery are must-see attractions in Dorset as well and are a short 20-minute hop in a car.
These are just a few firm favourites, but whatever you’re looking for, Weymouth will leave you wanting more and have you returning time and time again.
Our hotel is just two doors away and across the road from the Clock Tower, which was built to commemorate Queen Victoria’s golden jubilee.
We are opposite the beautiful, sandy, award-winning beach – officially recognised as one of the best in the UK and where there is lots of fun to be had for all the family – and are within walking distance of the town centre and the harbour.
Weymouth – which is part of the Jurassic Coast – and the surrounding area have plenty to offer, so to help you make the most of your stay, we’ve compiled a list of some places that you may like to visit.
Built in the Victorian era to protect the harbour, this installation not only has a fascinating story to tell, with various events throughout the year as well, but it also offers spectacular views.
Explore the ocean depths and get up close and personal with amazing and beautiful marine creatures without getting a single toe wet!
Weyland & Portland National Sailing Academy
Weyland & Portland National Sailing Academy was the first of the 2012 Olympic venues to be completed and offers daily and weekly memberships for those keen to get out on the water by themselves.
Portland Bill Lighthouse has been standing majestically for the past 114 years. It has a range of 25 nautical miles and guides passing vessels through the hazardous waters around Portland Bill. There is also a Visitor Centre here and breathtaking scenic walks along the cliffs with the waves crashing around you on a windy day.
These are just a few venues but we’d be happy to give you more ideas – just ask and we’ll do our very best to help.
We have a wealth of restaurants in and around Weymouth, ranging from fine dining and the very best seafood establishments to amazing fish and chips with a stunning harbour view.
