Wonderful Weymouth 5 Days - Royal Hotel
Weymouth is one of Britain's oldest seaside resorts, made popular by George III whose statue stands on the promenade. It has just about everything one could ask for in a seaside town: a lovely curving bay with soft sands, a fascinating harbour with interesting old pubs and cottages, the remains of a Tudor castle, some engaging architecture, a wide variety of shops and plenty to entertain both day and night. Add to this a bird reserve which is almost in the centre of town, a museum, an indoor swimming pool and lots of boat trips and you are sure to have an absorbing holiday.
PLEASE NOTE: Price is per person and based on two people sharing a twin/double room. Single room supplements and upgrades are not included.

Day 2 - Full Day Dorchester, West Bay & Dorset Coast
Visit historic Dorchester, the county town of Dorset. The birthplace of author and poet Thomas Hardy, the town enjoys a rich history dating back as far as the Iron Age. Explore at leisure before we make our way to the coast and visit pretty West Bay which is situated on the Jurassic Coast. The towering cliffs loom over the sea and this was the setting of TV’s popular mystery drama Broadchurch. We return to Weymouth following the route of Chesil Beach, an 18-mile shingle barrier beach and one of Dorset’s most iconic landmarks./n
