Escape to Weymouth for golden sands and family fun

Weymouth, Dorset

With a spectacular sandy beach and safe waters plus other attractions in the town and surrounding area, there’s loads to do with the kids.

Enjoy simple family holiday pleasures in Weymouth this summer.  Find the best spot for digging and paddling on the three miles of golden sands with child-friendly, shallow waters. The little ones will love the donkey rides and a proper Punch and Judy show. 

Away from the beach there are attractions suitable for all the family. Marvel at the Sandworld sculptures or have a go yourself!  Zoom up the Jurassic Skyline Tower in a rotating capsule and enjoy panoramic views around Weymouth Bay, Portland and the Jurassic Coast, a World Heritage site.

Get back to nature at the Weymouth wetlands and follow the trails to see some amazing wildlife. End your days on Weymouth’s buzzing waterfront sampling fresh local seafood, gourmet pizzas and fish and chips on the quay.
