Weymouth Guide

Great days out by train

Situated at the estuary of the River Wey in Dorset, visit Weymouth for World Heritage coastline, maritime activity and a thronging seaside town.

A popular tourist destination since the eighteenth-century, Weymouth has something for everyone. It’s no surprise Weymouth attracts so many visitors in the summer from nearby Dorchester and across the UK.

The seaside town’s location halfway along the Jurassic Coast provides visitors with beautiful Weymouth Beach lined with grand Georgian architecture.

Whilst in Weymouth, why not visit Weymouth's SEA LIFE tower, situated next to Weymouth Harbour?

Travel to Weymouth from London with our Advance fares for just £14 Standard Class and £23 First Class, one way, when you book early. 

 

Get some inspiration on what to do when visiting Weymouth from our list below:

1. Weymouth Beach

The sands and safe water of Weymouth Beach and bay are some of the finest in Great Britain and Europe. The views from the bay are spectacular, stretching across the horizon taking in the World Heritage Jurassic Coastline. Throughout the year the beach also hosts several major events including the International Beach Kite Festival, Fireworks, Tag Rugby, Handball, International Volleyball, Motocross, Chase the Pudding Xmas fun run etc. For information on the things going on in Weymouth, visit the Weymouth Tourist Information website.

2/3. Weymouth Marina and Harbour

Located in the inner-harbour, Weymouth Marina is an ideal destination for a summer holiday or a simple stop over on-route to the West Country. There’s the beautiful Jurassic Coast nearby to explore, and if that’s too much you can relax on the town’s sandy beach and then kick back in one of the many bars and restaurants. Weymouth Harbour is just a short walk from Weymouth Station. Have a look at the range of events that also take place in the Harbour area here.

4. Radipole Lake

Radipole Lake reserve is the place to head if you enjoy bird spotting. This RSPB lake offers sightings of seven or eight feathered species, from common birds such as robins to rare bitterns and the hard-to-spot Getti warbler. It is just a few minutes’ walk from Weymouth train station to the lake.

5. Hope Square and Brewers Quay

An area which is an old part of Weymouth set back from the harbour and encompasses the old Brewery. The square hosts many entertainment events, notably the Oyster Festival in May. Visit Hope Square and Brewers Quay for the best shopping spots in the area and for some lovely places to eat.
