About Weymouth and Nearby
Weymouth has always been a very popular seaside resort – King George III used to visit regularly between 1789 and 1805 – and is still a great resort for families.
The sand beach is superb and the sea is safe for bathing.
There are all the usual attractions including Punch and Judy, trampolines and Weymouth’s famous sand modeller. Weymouth offers excellent water sports facilities for wind surfers and jet skiers, and in the height of season the firework display on the beach of Weymouth is a wonderful sight to see.
The area also offers bowling, walking, cycling, golf and the opportunity to charter a fishing boat. Weymouth is classed as an international resort and hosts events throughout the year including the International Kite Festival, Beach Volleyball and Sailing Regattas.
Places to visit are Brewers quay by the harbour – a redeveloped Victorian brewery housing a superb range of attractions including the “time walk journey” and the shopping village. There are fun parks such as Sea Life, Monkey World and Sharky’s – where children can swing, jump, slide and climb.
