Are you looking for a holiday full of contrasts, where you can mix family beach fun with rugged island walks bursting with wildlife? A stay in Weymouth and Portland will offer you this and so much more!
The fun never stops in Weymouth! Bask in three miles of gorgeous golden sands lapped by safe, shallow waters where the kids can play for hours. Chug along the promenade on the land train for a gentle seaside ride. The little ones will love the donkey rides and a proper Punch and Judy show and all ages will enjoy the thrills and spills of the beachside rides!
Away from the beach there are fun attractions for all the family. Marvel at sand sculptures or have a go yourself! Zoom skywards in a rotating capsule for panoramic views around Weymouth Bay and across to Portland. There’s pirate golf, sea life adventures, indoor play parks and wonderful nature trails to follow – and with a packed year round events programme, the hardest part will be deciding what to do today!
Just steps away from the beach, meander through quaint colourful streets on your way to Weymouth’s beautiful quayside harbour with its historic lifting bridge. Sit alfresco at one of the many restaurants, bars and cafes and enjoy the catch of the day or savour some mouth-watering fish and chips as you wander by the boats.
There is something truly special about Portland, it’s a place like no other and is a must visit destination in Dorset, sitting right at the heart of the Jurassic Coast. Famed for its Olympic sailing waters, this is an island begging to be explored. Rugged and romantic, there are miles of paths where you’ll find grazing goats and get close to the wildlife at every turn. The views are all spectacular, but not many can beat the vista of Chesil Beach and the Fleet Lagoon from the top of the island, it will take your breath away!
History and heritage is all around so you’ll never be short of something to do. Climb the majestic Portland Bill lighthouse,explore castles, museums, sculpture trails and even spot a wallaby on a family farm. Getting back to nature is what Portland is all about and a great starting point is the Fine Foundation Chesil Beach Centre - chat to volunteers and get involved in the many activities on offer. If you are feeling energetic there are plenty of sporting activities to get your pulse-racing on Portland from pony trekking to paragliding, the list goes on!
Weymouth and Portland hosts a number of wonderful events throughout the year, from major sporting challenges to community lead projects. Make sure you don't miss out on all that's happening download the Weymouth & Portland event schedule for 2017 here.
After a day of fun and fresh air exploring on Portland, you’ll be pleased to know that there are many places to relax and refuel. Fresh fish and locally sourced produce appears in eateries all over the island, so sit back and toast the sunset whilst you plan your next Portland adventure!
