Itinerary

Overview

Wonderful Weymouth boasts a World Heritage Jurassic Coastline and has a charming harbour where you can watch all the comings and goings of luxury yachts, fishing trawlers, tall ships and RNLI Lifeboats. Last year, the resort’s long arc of fine golden sand was declared the UK’s best beach in TripAdvisor’s Travellers' Choice Awards and also ranked as ninth best beach in Europe. Weymouth’s grand Georgian seafront is lined with al fresco cafés and provided a beautiful backdrop to the sailing events during the London 2012 Olympic Games. Enjoy awesome views from the Jurassic Skyline tower or relax in Bennetts Water Gardens with its tropical lilies and ponds as well as a ‘Monet style’ bridge. Perhaps head to Nothe Fort, built by the Victorians and now an award winning visitor attraction with underground passageways and ramparts. Maybe you’d like to experience the sights and sounds at one of Weymouth’s RSPB reserves where you’ll have the chance to get up close to local wildlife.

Your Excursions

Broadchurch’s West Bay & Lyme Regis - Fans of the smash hit TV series Broadchurch will be engrossed by our excursion to West Bay – the murder mystery’s instantly recognisable backdrop. The towering sandstone cliffs at West Bay featured prominently in the show and the drama’s police station, harbour and pier are also located in this sleepy settlement. We continue to Lyme Regis, a village set against moody blue cliffs with an intriguing mystique and a harbour called the Cobb. The resort has a number of historical landmarks, most notably the fourteenth century watermill and the fascinating Leper’s Well. Perhaps visit the museum that tell the story of the town’s fossils, browse the art at the Beachcomber Gallery or unwind in Lister Gardens.

Dorchester & Jurassic Coast -  The market town of Dorchester was the inspiration for fictional “Casterbridge” in Thomas Hardy’s novels and is home to a statue of the great author. There is also a must see Roman Town House that was uncovered in the 1930s and is now a Grade I listed monument. We return via the breathtaking Jurassic Coast with its dramatic cliffs, secluded coves, shingle banks and sandy beaches.
