Holidays in Weymouth and Portland
Weymouth and Portland are areas of great contrast. Portland at the southernmost tip of Dorset is home to some of the most dramatic and rugged coastline anywhere with a real sense of isolation, while Weymouth just across the bay is home to one of the most family friendly beaches and a hive of activity.
Weymouth is a vibrant seaside town with plenty of great activities and attractions to keep everyone entertained. The town is well known for its year round events programme including international events like the Beach Volleyball Championships and the International Beach Kite Festival.
The ‘Isle’ of Portland is a must visit for keen explorers wishing to discover its fascinating history and folklore. Portland is wonderful host for outdoor activities and the waters provide a perfect setting for fishing, diving and sailing. It’s no wonder the National Sailing Academy based at Portland hosted the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games sailing events.
Weymouth and Portland not to be missed
Get in touch with nature while on your visit to Weymouth and Portland with the Radipole Lake and Lodmoor nature reserves providing a home to some stunning wildlife, with birds visiting from all over the world throughout the year.
Enjoy some wonderful seafood served at one of the great harbour side restaurants and watch all the ships coming and going from the 17th Century harbour, a perfect setting to sit back and relax with friends.
The young at heart you can party the night away at the bars and nightclubs all within walking distance of each other in the town centre.
