In the picturesque bay in the mouth of the River Way, Weymouth is famed for its miles of golden sands and seaside/holiday feel. One of the jewels of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site, an area of scientific interest and stunning coastline, it’s easy to see why it attracts so many visitors and has become a sort after place to live.
More than 200 events are held here each year – weekly fireworks on the beach in the summer, beach sports tournaments and mega sailing events. Weymouth and Portland were chosen to host the sailing events for the 2012 Olympics – an amazing honour for such a small town. Other international sailing events are held in these waters which are considered to be among the best in northern Europe.
There are also two RSPB Nature Reserves, eleven Sites of Special Scientific Interest covering 1,979 acres, several smaller beaches and a trailway tracing the line of the old railway to Portland. Not forgetting the beautiful Jurassic coastland.
Another point of interest worth a visit is Sandsfoot Castle built by Henry the III to protect the area from invasion.
If you fancy a dip Christmas Day sees hundreds of people brave the elements to swim across the harbour raising money for charity.
