A Beautiful, Family-holiday Destination on the South Coast
Weymouth is situated in the West of England on the south coast and is very popular with British holidaymakers. Traditionally it was one of the first camping and caravanning venues in the UK due to its value-for-money holidays and its location in one of the sunniest in the UK.
It has continued its traditional role of offering good value-for-money holidays, predominantly for families with young and teenage children and provides a wide variety of leisure activities for all ages.
Pleasure Boats, Buckets and Spades
Weymouth’s most famous attraction is definitely its beachfront but there are other things to visit, too. There are two large shopping centres, a fantastic museum and an impressive aquarium. There is also a busy harbour, which has recently been refurbished.
The rocky coastline of the nearby Isle of Portland is part of the World Heritage Coast and just across the way on the gentle warm sandy bay you will find one of the most family friendly beaches in the UK.
The inner harbour includes a modern marina housing hundreds of pleasure boats, cruisers and sailing boats. The local residents offer fishing trips and boat tours along the coast and out to the nearby Isle of Portland.
The port also hosts the tall ships race, known as the “Cutty Sark Tall ships race” and on three separate occasions it held this event. It has also become one of the ports to host the starting and finishing legs of the International biennial Starmanche yacht race which runs from France to Ireland via Weymouth making the port and marina a popular spot for yachting enthusiasts.
Fishing and Cross-channel Ferries
For many hundreds of years the harbour and port of Weymouth were a passenger terminal and also a trading point for cargo handling wool and spices from overseas. The Old Harbour still hosts several large fishing fleets and cargo docks and the passenger terminal now includes a cross-channel ferry, which takes passengers to France, Guernsey and Jersey.
Enjoy the Diversity of the Old Harbour
Weymouth has a very pretty 17th Century Harbour close to the town centre. The harbour is a wonderful place to see lots of live street entertainers and grab a coffee or relax over a nice meal whilst you enjoy the views.
