Exploring Weymouth and the surrounding area


Whether you're coming to Weymouth for a break on the beach, a walk around the Jurassic coast or using it as a base to explore Dorset's attractions, there will always be something to do, whatever time of year. Please take a look below for some information to help you plan your trip and follow the link for a local events calendar.


Things to see and do

Whether you are looking to stay in Weymouth itself or venture a bit further out, you have so many choices. Please see the events board located just next to the Guest Book on the ground floor for information regarding local events that may be on during your stay or get in touch if you wish to know what will be on during your future visit.

Weymouth has some beautiful gardens to discover and there are always great spots for a good cup of tea and cake within the gardens. Try Nothe, Greenhill, Bennetts water and Abbotsbury subtropical gardens.

Nothe Fort is a great heritage attraction or a walk up to Bowleaze Cove which has stunning views over Weymouth Bay. You could take a coastal cruise around Weymouth bay and the Isle of Portland, a fishing trip out to sea, or just a wander around the old cobbled side streets and old harbour of Weymouth.
