Self-catering holiday accommodation in Weymouth
Weymouth is famed for its golden sandy beach sprinkled with deckchairs, its safe shallow waters and an action-packed events programme. You certainly won’t want to miss out on its pretty harbourside either. Weymouth Beach is consistently recognised as one of the best beaches in Europe and is perfect for family days out with an abundance of attractions for all ages, including the Jurassic Skyline, sand sculptures and an underwater world of dazzling sea creatures.
When it comes to finding places to eat in Weymouth you’re in luck. Whether you’re looking for fresh seafood, old-fashioned pub grub or a simple meal made with local produce you’ll find it here, as there is a great selection of eateries. The town was famously the destination for the sailing events at the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games where its impressive scenery gave the games a coastal touch. It is also the perfect starting place to explore this part of Dorset, with easy and close access to places such as Osmington, Preston and Burton Bradstock, not to mention the wonderful Abbotsbury Subtropical Gardens.
You can get active yourself by hiring a bike, going for a ride on horseback or even hiring a boat. Don't forget to visit Nothe Fort, built by the Victorians to protect Portland Harbour - this network of underground passages is a fascinating place for keen historians as well as having wonderful views out to sea.
