Enjoy a relaxing weekend break in glorious Weymouth, consistently recognised as one of the top ten beach destinations in Europe, and with the beautiful golden beaches and pretty harbour, it is easy to see why! Take a stroll along the esplanade and admire the beauty of the scenery that surrounds you. It is one of the UK’s most beautiful seaside resorts with a fine Georgian seafront and impressive sandy beaches. Discover the picturesque 17th century harbour and visit Brewer’s Quay which is full of arts, crafts and antique shops. You could also take a bus or taxi to Portland Bill, visit the Sealife Centre or just sit and relax, enjoying the views and watching the world go by.

You'll stay right on the seafront in the heart of Weymouth at the comfortable Royal Hotel, with panoramic views out over the sea and towards the cliffs that still protect the Bay, located just a short way from Weymouth's beautiful sandy beach, town centre and harbour. The hotel organises great evening entertainment on some nights for you to enjoy, unless you'd prefer to head off into Weymouth to enjoy the nightlife.

You can have plenty of time to explore Weymouth but we've also included a sightseeing excursion to Dorchester (famous for housing the best-preserved Roman ruins in the country) and the dramatic Jurassic Coast as we take you on to West Bay, home to the hit TV series, Broadchurch.

An ideal choice for:

* Lovers of our coastal heritage or a traditional seaside break
* A great value weekend away to do as little or as much as you please
* Anyone who wants a relaxed weekend break with everything taken care of

Itinerary

Day 1

Join your coach this morning at your convenient local pick-up point, and head to the fantastic Dorset resort of Weymouth, and your centrally located hotel. On arrival at the comfortable Royal Hotel you will find yourself in the heart of this popular resort with its beautiful golden beaches and pretty harbour. Enjoy time to settle in and get yourself orientated. Take time to enjoy a stroll along the lovely seafront with its Georgian buildings that became world famous as the backdrop to the sailing events of the 2012 Olympic Games. Perhaps enjoy a drink in the bar before your first included evening meal with your new travel friends.

Days 2 & 3

Your centrally located hotel means you are close to all the great things Weymouth has to offer. So make sure you explore and enjoy every moment. Take a walk along the esplanade or the fabulous sands. Why not hire a deckchair, enjoy a paddle in the shallow waters and enjoy fish and chips as you listen to the gentle waters lap against the golden beach. Visit the harbour and sit back and relax in one of the lovely bars or bistros and watch the luxury yachts, fishing trawlers and even the RNLI Lifeboat as they sail by. Perhaps enjoy a traditional Dorset Cream Tea! Or step out to the bustling town centre with great independent traders selling everything from traditional seaside rock to beachwear, books and fabulous foodie treats from cheese and wine to pasties and pies!

You can spend all of your time in and around Weymouth but for further exploration, don't miss your INCLUDED excursion to the historic market town of Dorchester in the heart of stunning Thomas Hardy country with time to explore its shops and interesting museums which include the Dorset County Museum and the Keep Military Museum. We also take in the lovely West Bay, gateway to Dorset's ancient Jurassic Coast and also very familiar to TV drama Broadchurch fans.

As well as filling breakfasts and delicious dinners your hotel offers great entertainment on some evenings during your stay too, so you can relax and be entertained after fantastic days exploring.

Day 4

After a final hearty breakfast it is time to say farewell to Weymouth and the lovely county of Dorset today. Board your comfortable coach for a relaxing journey home full of lovely memories.

Weymouth

INCLUDED Visitor DestinationWith beautiful golden sands sprinkled with deckchairs, safe shallow waters, an action packed events programme and pretty harbourside, you certainly won’t be lost for things to do in wonderful Weymouth! The world was introduced to the Georgian grandeur of Weymouth during the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, when its fine seafront provided an impressive backdrop to the sailing events and captured the hearts of many! Sit back and relax with a glass of fizz or a Dorset Cream Tea from one of the harbourside bars or bistros...a great way to spend an afternoon or evening! In the main season, a visit to the Nothe Fort is a must. Built by the Victorians to protect Portland Harbour, this unique attraction is a network of underground passages and is steeped in history, and it provides stunning views out towards Portland and over Weymouth Bay. From sand sculptures to a magical underwater world of dazzling sea creatures, Weymouth has attractions to delight visitors of all ages!

Dorchester & West Bay

INCLUDED Visitor AttractionDorchester is a vibrant town for sightseeing and shopping. You will find a town with one foot in the past and another firmly in the future, with some of this country's best preserved Roman ruins moments away from a thriving high street. Dorchester is very fortunate in having no less than 8 museums, leafy riverside walks near the centre, dialect trails through the town's shops and cafes and the largest Iron Age hillfort in Europe. The Dorset Museum will give you an insight into the county's Jurassic past through to the life and work of Dorset's famous novelist and poet Thomas Hardy. For more specialist interests you could visit the many themed museums from Teddies to Terracotta Warriors and Tutankhamun, all in this bustling town where there are plenty of individual shops and cafes to browse and watch the world go by for a more sedate visit.

Your journey through Dorset continues to the beautiful Jurassic coast with West Bay. Only a few miles away the dramatic cliffs are breathtaking at the village of West Bay, known to millions of TV viewers the world over as Broadchurch.
