With the fantastic backdrop of the World Heritage Jurassic Coast, an award winning safe sandy beach, full programme of colourful events and fun-filled attractions, Weymouth is the ideal all year round holiday destination.

The golden sands and safe shallow waters are the perfect place to enjoy the best of a British seaside holiday. RNLI lifeguards provide peace of mind, so hire a deckchair or sun lounger, sit back and relax.

There’s plenty of entertainment for everyone, from traditional attractions such as Punch & Judy and donkey rides to lively events and international sporting championships.

The three mile beach, with its level promenade, is just minutes from the town centre where high street stores sit alongside quaint and specialist local shops.

A short stroll will take you to the historic harbour where you can sit and watch the town bridge life as the boats come and go. The quay provides an interesting and ever changing scene. Enjoy one of the restaurants, bars or cafes - many alfresco - offering seaside refreshments, award winning fish and chips and fine dining experiences.

There’s a wide choice of attractions to visit, whatever the weather, including Lodmoor Country Park’s sand sculptures and sealife park, glass blowing and craft workshops, and outdoor attractions such as nature reserves, parks and gardens. There’s a cinema, amusement arcades, indoor soft play areas for the little ones and much more.

As the sun sets, Weymouth comes alive with a new-found atmosphere. The bay is lit by veils of laser lights as restaurants serve local and international fare and harbourside seafood suppers.
