Newest Review: ... good food. A local bus service goes to and from Weymouth on a regular basis. I had never stayed at Weymouth before so we looked out for leaflets/booklets on the area. These were in plentiful supply. The best was a free magazine that I picked up in the chip shop. This magazine told us about Weymouth White Horse, which had been cut out in the hills closeby.The white horse is approximately is ... more

As Weymouth resident due to a job relocation. I can honestly say it is a beautiful place to live. But if you are a young single professional looking to make to make friends and maybe meet someone just don't bother. It would be the ideal place to move if you have a family or if you are retiring.

Having just spent the best part of a week near Weymouth, Southern England, it seems somewhat appropriate to spend some time doing a review for the area and some of its attractions. I stayed in Haven's Weymouth Bay Holiday Park in a mobile home, but I will review the park at a later date. For now I will concentrate on Weymouth and the surrounding area. Although Weymouth Bay Holiday Park is in the Weymouth area, it is actually based in a lovely little village called Preston. Our caravan was based near the edge of the site, as far away from the entertainment as you could possibly get, near to a lovely little 14th century church called St. Andrews. It really is a ...

Fantastic beach? Georgian seafront? Picturesque harbour sprinkled with gently jostling fishing boats? English RIVIERA? And. according to these reviews, people go there regularly on holiday for a FORTNIGHT? Can there be possibly two Weymouths in Dorset, and does that mean that yesterday, I went and visited the wrong place?? Well on the (only) main road on the way in I did notice the gigantic Morrison's supermarket on the hill overlooking the town. The picturesque harbour was not so much a mooring place for charmingly-painted fishing boats as a large centre-of-town marina, packed with modern yachts and complete with two concrete block-shaped multi-story ...

Weymouth is the town that I grew up in, and spent the first 18years of my life living there, and I absolutely loved it. A traditional English seaside town, Weymouth is situated on the Dorset coast, about an hour west from Bournemouth, and 8 miles from the county town of Dorchester. It is now considered part of the Jurassic coast, and attracts many people, particularly to the outside villages of Fleet (the setting of Moonfleet) and Abbotsbury, where the Chesil beach starts. Aside from the geological attraction, Weymouth's main appeal is the beach, which stretches from Bowleaze cove down to the pavillion. The beach is divided part way along by a rock mound, ...

Weymouth has always been one of my favourite seasides, and has a lot of benefits in addition to its areas of golden sand at one end and its shingly appearance at the other. Next to the main car park, there is one of the best sea life centres I have been to - on at least 3 occassions and has a lot of different species, a children's play area and an outdoor pool for a quick splash. There's also a museum to the brewing industry - Brewers Quay which is well worth a visit. The beach is great and quite often radio 1 visits there for a roadshow during the Summer. It's easily accessible by rail, bus or coach which are within walking ... Read the complete review
