Enjoy simple family holiday pleasures in Weymouth. You'll have three miles of golden sands perfect for building sandcastles, and child-friendly shallow waters for dipping your toes in. If they're small enough, you can even treat the little ones to a traditional seaside donkey ride, or get them acquainted with some old friends – Punch and Judy.

Away from the beach, there are more attractions suitable for all the family. Marvel at the huge sand sculptures (or have a go yourself!) at Sandworld, or dive beneath the ocean at SEA LIFE Weymouth.
