Things to do in Weymouth

Weymouth has all the true attributes of a British holiday town with a major seafaring heritage.

-Bennetts Water Gardens is a tranquil and beautiful place popular with local and visitors in Weymouth holiday homes. Here you can explore 8 acres of gardens filled with carefully preserved plants and there are many things to see, including the National Plants Collection of giant water lilies in a Monet style setting, Japanese bridge included.

-Timewalk is located in the Hope Square/Brewers Quay area which is also a local shopping destination. Discover the exciting history of this small coastal town by following the guided sensory trail. It starts with the Black Death and guides you all the way through the settling of the Americas and the preparations by British troops for World War Two.

-Sea Life Park & Marine Sanctuary is home to aquatic mammals and sea creatures from all over the world including penguins, large otters, turtles, crocodiles and seals. Displays include a walkthrough ocean tank, rainforest and reef and kids will love the interactive rock pool, feeding times and shows.

-Nothe Fort is a large fort built on the entrance to Weymouth harbour. Formally designed to protect this important coastal settlement from invasion, the Nothe Fort offers stunning views over Portland and Weymouth harbours. There’s also a number of educational and intriguing exhibitions just for children.

-Brewers Quay is located close to holiday apartments in Weymouth. In Hope Square, this Victorian brewery has been redeveloped and opened to visitors. It offers a chance to look into the brewing history of Weymouth, whilst also offering a Speciality Shopping Village where you can pick up some great souvenirs.
