There Are Plenty Of Things Vacationers Can Get Up To When In Weymouth
With its widely known Georgian sea front and spectacular colorful sands, it's hardly surprising that almost all tourists who visit Weymouth and Portland do it for the shorelines. Even so, this is without doubt a holiday location that's jam packed with excitement.
The sands and secure sea water of Weymouth are legendary and widely known as among the best not only to the UK but in the whole of Europe. Weymouth Seaside has gotten many awards, including for its excellent standards of sanitation, water quality and safety. However, maybe its leading drawing point is the fantastic views it supplies.
It's an excellent destination to indulge in some recreation too, with the sea side playing host to a worldwide Beach Kite Event, fireworks, tag rugby, handball, international volleyball and a lot more. It can also be packed with conveniences which includes deckchairs, suntraps, sun beds, bathrooms and baby changing facilities.
Staying on the water theme and one more of the major reasons to visit Weymouth could well be its harbour. It is placed in the centre of the town and is great for cruising excursions to northern France or even the Channel Islands. The sailing waters also have gained world-wide popularity and held the 2012 olympics that saw some uk winners.
The rugged isle of Portland can be another excellent location for the adventurous. Its waters produce an excellent setting for angling, deep-sea diving and sailing with the location jam packed with remarkable natural splendor just like the well-known Portland stone that was utilized to produce such structures as St Paul's Cathedral and the Waterloo Bridge.
You do not really need to stay in the water to have a good time at Weymouth as there are a good amount of alternative sights to keep you busy.
The Lodmoor Country Park delivers a lot of attractions and amenities such as the Sea Life Centre and marine sanctuary; though Brewer's Quay complex is just a short walk from the village centre and presents visitors an opportunity to travel back in history to 14thCentury Weymouth with its Timewalk Museum. Indeed if heritage is your thing then you might also want to take a look at the Nothe Fort, a Victorian fortress with ww2 memorabilia.
Portland on the other hand supplies several of the UK's most remarkable natural-themed destinations including Portland Bill Lighthouse, the Stone Sculpture Park and Portland Castle.
However it is impossible to do it all in a day - so be sure to reserve a beautiful weymouth bed and breakfast near the beachfront.
