From the three miles of beautiful sandy beach, to the many indoor and outdoor attractions that make it a haven for families, Weymouth has something for everyone throughout the whole year. With one of the mildest (and for that matter the sunniest) climates in the UK, Weymouth bustles with activity all year round.\u003c/p\u003e\r\n\r\n\u003cp\u003eWhether your idea of the perfect escape involves long lazy days watching the kids hone their sandcastle making skills, or days out at the indoor and outdoor attractions that dot the region, Weymouth has it all. If you fancy getting high above the town and looking across the Jurassic coastline as it rolls into the distance, the Jurassic Skyline makes for an experience that\u0026rsquo;s unlike any other. Or, for those chilled out days, why not introduce your kids to the joys of crabbing? Weymouth\u0026rsquo;s a destination where pretty much anything goes \u0026ndash; and that\u0026rsquo;s why we love it!\u003c/p\u003e\r\n\r\n\u003ch2\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eThings to do in Weymouth\u003c/strong\u003e\u003c/h2\u003e\r\n\r\n\u003cp\u003eWhere to start with things to do in Weymouth\u0026hellip;how about on the three miles of sandy beach that make it so popular with families? With golden sands and views that stretch for miles, this is one of those beaches that makes you remember why you love the great British seaside so much. You\u0026rsquo;ll find Punch and Judy bickering, donkey rides for the kids and even the beach volleyball championships once every summer.\u003c/p\u003e\r\n\r\n\u003cp\u003eWe mentioned the Jurassic Skyline before, and if you\u0026rsquo;ve a head for heights it makes a fantastic way to see the UNESCO World Heritage Site from another perspective. If you fancy seeing more of the historic coastline close up, take a speed boat tour out to sea with Weymouth Bay Rib Charters. The RIB rides last 20 minutes each, and you\u0026rsquo;ll start you journey in the town\u0026rsquo;s harbour before venturing out to the bay for an adrenaline-charged experience at speeds of up to 40mph.\u003c/p\u003e\r\n\r\n\u003cp\u003eFor those days when you\u0026rsquo;re content to just sit on the pier and see what you can catch, Weymouth\u0026rsquo;s a great spot for a little sea fishing, and you\u0026rsquo;ll find parents helping their children to master crab lines along the pier on a sunny day.\u003c/p\u003e\r\n\r\n\u003ch2\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eWeymouth attractions\u003c/strong\u003e\u003c/h2\u003e\r\n\r\n\u003cp\u003eOh goody, we\u0026rsquo;ve been waiting to tell you all about our favourite Weymouth attractions. From the historic to the wildlife-themed, there\u0026rsquo;s honestly a day out to suit your every mood. One of our favourites has to be Nothe Fort. One of the more, shall we say, unusual attractions in Weymouth, this fort juts proudly out into the harbour, and it\u0026rsquo;s home to a whole network of intriguing underground passages. Built in 1872 to protect the harbour, the fort\u0026rsquo;s museum\u0026rsquo;s home to a World War II experience complete with British and American military vehicles.\u003c/p\u003e\r\n\r\n\u003cp\u003eYou\u0026rsquo;ll find one of the most exciting Weymouth attractions just a short drive from the town \u0026ndash; and that\u0026rsquo;s the Abbotsbury Swannery. The only place in the whole world where you can wander your way through a beautiful colony of mute swans, this quirky attraction enables its visitors to take part in a mass swan (and cygnet) feeding, as well as wait and see if you can watch them hatch. Visit between the middle of May and the end of June and you\u0026rsquo;ll be greeted by fluffy cygnets keen to welcome friendly faces\u0026hellip;aaaaaw!\u003c/p\u003e\r\n\r\n\u003ch2\u003eWeymouth Events\u003c/h2\u003e\r\n\r\n\u003cp\u003eWith all that gloriously sandy beach and the promenade that seems to roll on forever, it\u0026rsquo;s easy to see why Weymouth\u0026rsquo;s events calendar tends to be pretty full. For one think, Weymouth Carnival Day and Fireworks is a shimmering two day event that brightens every summer. The carnival\u0026rsquo;s one of Dorset\u0026rsquo;s biggest annual events, and previous years have included a torchlight procession when evening falls, an air show, live music, foodie stalls and the all-important crowing of the Carnival Queen.\u003c/p\u003e\r\n\r\n\u003cp\u003eOver in neighbouring Portland, the Spirit of Portland takes place for 9 days every year \u0026ndash; and it\u0026rsquo;s fantastic. Held across various venues throughout Portland, the festival celebrates everything that\u0026rsquo;s great about the region. The programme varies from year to year, but you can expect plenty of live music, talks, readings, workshops, cookery demonstrations and dances.\u003c/p\u003e\r\n","Alias":"weymouth","MainImageLocation":"https://assets.bluechipholidays.co.uk/media/catalogs/public/downloads/preview/custom_carousel/users/104/2013/08/weymouth beach.jpg/carousel.jpg","PointOfInterests":[{"AdditionalImages":[],"Id":0,"Title":"Weymouth Beach","Body":"\u003cp\u003eTHE resort for Weymouth beach holidays, Weymouth Beach boasts some of the safest waters on the English coast, and its sands have drawn families for their summer breaks for generations.\u003c/p\u003e\r\n\r\n\u003cp\u003eThere are fantastic views out to the Jurassic Coastline, and with great facilities and high standards for water quality this beach is ideal for those with children.
