July events: Join a seafood celebration at Dorset Seafood Festival

Weymouth & Portland, Dorset

Taste seafood straight from the sea and watch cooking demonstrations from famous chefs at the annual Dorset Seafood Festival in Weymouth.

Visit Weymouth this summer and you'll be able to experience an incredible festival of food. Walk along the 17th Century harbourside and see the bustling flotilla of fishing boats coming and going, bringing you their catch of the day. Then, watch as passionate chefs prepare and cook the fish fresh right in front of your eyes, showcasing a mouth-watering display of dishes using the best, fresh local produce. They’ll make it look very easy, so be sure to ask for tips to help you recreate what you taste at home.

Discover locals’ secrets as you dive into a prawn cocktail or Saffron infused crab bisque. Head a little further along the harbour and you’ll discover delights from seafood paella to swordfish kebabs -  internationally themed dishes are also a speciality here.

If that’s not enough, there are special shows from celebrity chefs, showing you how to get the best from a wide range of catches. Of course, if you’d prefer to dine under cover, Weymouth boasts a great selection of fine restaurants right along the harbour.

Dorset Seafood Festival 2019 takes place between 13-14 July.
