Dorset's Jurassic Coast

Dorset's Jurassic Coast

Looking for a coastal holiday destination with lots of seaside fun, water sports, festivals and a Heritage Coast just on your doorstep? Sunny Weymouth on the Dorset Coast is the perfect choice offering affordable quality accommodation and a host of local attractions and activities to suit all tastes.

The sandy beach at Weymouth is endless and award-winning, and families will find much to please from on-beach amusements to nearby Monkey World and the Tank Museum. Love sailing and windsurfing? Weymouth and Portland’s Olympic waters are where to head and pick up boat trips from the marina for Jurassic Coast underwater snorkelling trails!

For that perfect central Jurassic Coast location, Weymouth is hard to beat situated midway between Lyme Regis to the west and Swanage to the east. Some of England’s most magnificent coastal landscapes are only a short drive or bus ride from Weymouth including Lulworth Cove, Chesil Beach and Durdle Door. To the south of the resort is the Isle of Portland with more magical sites and scenes including the famous red and white Portland Bill lighthouse!

Be wowed by the views on one of Britain’s great coastal drives along the B3157 Jurassic Coast Road – 18 miles of pure scenic coastal heaven! The X53 Jurassic Coaster Bus also runs along this route.
