Why choose Weymouth

There is so much to see and do in Weymouth. With lots of events and attractions, for all ages throughout the year, it’s hard to decide when to visit this pretty seaside town.

There are still weeks available to stay at our newly decorated holiday home. Sleeping up to 6 people and in a superb location, it’s the perfect base to explore the many attractions along the beautiful Dorset coastline.

Simply select your week via our online booking system and we will be in touch if your booking has been successful. Bookings can be selected throughout February so you still have time!

 In May you can take part in The Big Dorset Outdoor Weekend. www.weareweymouth,co.uk/outdoorweekend. There is also the Quayside Music Festival, Transport of Yesteryear Car Display, at the Jubilee Clock and the Moth Open Water Sailing Championships www.wpnsa.org.uk

In June let your feet do the tapping at Wessex Folk Festival at Weymouth Harbour side www.wessexfolkfestival.com or join the Weymouth and Portland Armed Forces Day celebrations between 17th-23rd June.

Why not spend this Christmas and New Year in Weymouth. There’s lots of free entertainment including The Victorian Christmas Market that runs throughout the month of December, Santa’s parade, real reindeers, a snow machine and outdoor ice rink. It’s the perfect place to experience the magic of Christmas. If you fancy a dip in the freezing cold waters or just spectate, there’s the Christmas Day Harbour Swim off Weymouth Harbour. New Year doesn’t disappoint either with plenty of entertainment and revelry to celebrate 2018 in style.

New Year’s Eve in Weymouth has been highlighted as one of the best places in Europe for celebrations. Both visitors and locals put on fancy dress costume to wander around the town, soaking up the atmosphere and enjoying the wide variety of music events and live bands that feature throughout the evening.

It was a very low point in both my career and my personal life. I approached the Benevolent Fund as a last resort, I’ve...
