Concierge Tips – When the Olympic sailing is over, visit beautiful Waterfront at Weymouth & Portland

The Waterfront Weymouth

As one of the most picturesque harbours in Europe, Weymouth’s 17th Century Waterfront is home to some of Dorset’s finest pubs, restaurants, family attractions and architecture. Come and discover one of England’s truly special places!

The harbourside is steeped in history, with links to the Black Death, Spanish Armada, the Civil War and the D Day landings. Take the heritage trail and discover more of its history or just soak up the atmosphere of a bustling working harbour and watch crabs, lobster and sea fish of all kinds being landed daily. But if you really want to get involved, take a boat trip across the bay, try out the speedboats or join one of the diving trips.

Use this site to discover more about what this unique destination can offer you as a visitor, whether you come by land or sea!

Portland

The ‘isle’ of Portland, located on the World Heritage Coast, is an explorer’s Island with curiosities of history and folklore just waiting to be discovered. It is a stark and striking, tilted table of limestone four and a half miles long and one and three quarters miles wide, rising to nearly 500ft before sloping gently southwards towards Portland Bill. Joined to the mainland of Weymouth by the Chesil Beach and a public road bridge, the Isle has scenery and a quality of isolation which contrasts dramatically with Weymouth. The Island is probably best known for Portland Bill and the famous lighthouse (although, there are two earlier lighthouses nearby).

  1. What a great article. It is also one of England’s secret places as so many people (us included when we first came here) don’t know Weymouth even has a harbour.
