Our Properties in Weymouth
Weymouth is a seaside town located in the county of Dorset, in the South West of England, UK. It's a vibrant tourist destination, with an abundance of good food, and things to do for all ages; nestled within a secluded bay and framed by a 3 mile stretch of beach.
The famous golden sands of Weymouth are soft, light and also great for building sandcastles! So it'll come as no surprise that you'll find a world renown collection of larger than life sand sculptures at Sandworld, expertly crafted by some of the best artists both locally and internationally, that collectively weigh in excess of 2,000 tonnes!
But if walking on the sparkly white powder is more your thing, then the sands of Weymouth Beach are a must. Whether you plan to catch the sunrise as it lights up the horizon, or dip a toe into the refreshing waters as you stroll along the shore, this vast expanse goes on for as far as the eye can see. Looking to the most easterly side of the bay is Bowleaze Cove, and if you're to walk the stretch, will notice the small grains of sand slowly turn to shingle and then smooth pebbles.
The waters at Weymouth are famously clean, calm, and shallow, perfect for paddling or for little ones wanting to splash about and play. This is thanks to the Portland Breakwater and natural shape of the cove, which help to form a sea that is gentle and shallow, ideal for swimming, kayaking or even hiring a pedalo for a leisurely day out on the water.
Weymouth's Esplanade runs parallel to the seafront, lined with fabulous canary island palm trees, regal Victorian architecture and wide open pathways for visitors to take it all in. Here you'll find an array of sea view restaurants, cafes and bars, (see here for our favourites!) plus a great selection of fish and chips shops, huts and refreshments.
A cluster of amusements are to the west of the beach, with arcades, Weymouth's Pier and The Pavillion - which is home to a charming theatre. Whilst around the corner will lead you to the 17th century harbour and marina, a picturesque and bustling setting, filled with fishing boats and private vessels. Here you can book guided boat tours that'll take you out to the Jurassic Coast, or for adrenaline junkies, why not try a RIB, for guaranteed speeds and high chances of getting wet!
Overlooking the harbour and tucked up on its perch is Nothe Fort. Built in 1860 it was once an important naval defence, but today has been turned into a museum; allowing visitors to explore the fortress and learn about Weymouth's role in defending England's shores. Also on the hill is Nothe Gardens, a serene park boasting views across to The Isle of Portland and Newton's Cove - an often overlooked and quiet patch of Weymouth that's great when you need to get away from the hustle, with a very picturesque and quiet stretch of beach with rockpools.
Weymouth really does have a lot to offer, and is made up of lots of interesting areas and attractions that makes this place so varied and special. Whether you've got a young family and the kids want to see the Sea Turtles, Sharks & Rays at The Sea Life Centre, or you'd like to take a leisurely walk around some of its historical heritage sites like Sandfoot Castle.
Getting to Weymouth is easy. If travelling by car, take the A35 or A37 to Dorchester, then follow the newly built (for the 2012 Olympics) A354 Weymouth road. Or take a Train that runs from either Bristol Temple Meads, or London Waterloo. There's also a great bus service, plus a convenient Park & Ride. Weymouth is also great to get around on a bicycle, with miles of dedicated cycle paths!
