Situated on the mouth of the river Wey this pretty east facing town is on the southern coast of England.




"Weymouth is a seaside town in Dorset, England, situated on a sheltered bay at the mouth of the River Wey on the English Channel coast. The town is 11 kilometres (7 mi) south of Dorchester and 8 kilometres (5 mi) north of the Isle of Portland. Weymouth has a metropolitan population of 71,611 (2018). The town is the third largest settlement in Dorset after Bournemouth and Poole.Weymouth is a tourist resort, and its economy depends on its harbour and visitor attractions; the town is a gateway situated halfway along the Jurassic Coast, a World Heritage Site on the Dorset and east Devon coast, important for its geology and landforms. Weymouth Harbour has included cross-channel ferries, and is home to pleasure boats and private yachts, and nearby Portland Harbour is home to the Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy, where the sailing events of the 2012 Olympic Games and Paralympic Games were held.

The A354 road bridge connects Weymouth to Portland, which together form the borough of Weymouth and Portland. The history of the borough stretches back to the 12th century; including involvement in the spread of the Black Death, the settlement of the Americas, the development of Georgian architecture, and a major departure point for the Normandy Landings."

Arrived in Weymouth by boat up the river today to find the town buzzing with live music and people in such a party atmosphere!! It's fantastic to find such a lively crowd in a beautiful setting.

Weymouth Marina
5.0

The marina is well maintained and orderly, the shower blocks have been kept tidy. Marina staff are very pleasant and helpful. The marina is close to the town centre walking distance and other places, it was a short walk to find the nearest coffee shop.
