- Nothe Fort is at the entrance to Weymouth Harbour, constructed on three levels, with lift access, the Fort is filled with displays, guns and display areas that describe the history of this Victorian Fort. The Fort is a labyrinth of underground passageways and outdoor areas with stunning views of the coast.
- Newton’s Cove is a small cove between the main Weymouth beach and Portland Harbour, next to the Nothe Fort. The cove is a mix of sand, shingle and rock pools. No facilities at the beach although car park, toilets and cafe near the entrance to the Nothe Fort. After parking, you can walk through Nothe Gardens to the promenade and along to the beach at Newton’s Cove.
- Weymouth Pier is approached by a rather long pathway that runs around the edge of the ferry terminal. The pier itself is split into two, a commercial ferry terminal and public areas. Entertainment includes an amusement arcade situated in the rebuilt theatre. The pier is a popular location for sea fishing.
- Weymouth beach with its golden sands is one of the best family beaches along the South Coast. The long curving bay makes Weymouth Dorset’s main holiday town. The main beach is within the town boundaries and backed by elegant Georgian terraces. Weymouth was a small fishing village until King George III visited in 1789 and kept coming back to get the sea air. Don’t worry it is not all old as Weymouth has been updating itself whilst keeping the character, there’s something for everyone in Weymouth and on Weymouth Beach. During the summer months lifeguards patrol, Punch and Judy to amuse the children, donkeys, and the famous sand modeller still amazes the crowds with his original creations. Swingboats,, trampolines, carousels and a helter skelter add to the colourful scene and snacks, ice creams and all manner of shops, cafe and restaurants
- Castle Cove beach in Portland Harbour is just a five minute walk from Weymouth Town Centre. The beach is sand, rockpools and seaweed and is so different from the golden sand of Weymouth’s main beach. Cafe offers hot and cold snacks, ice creams, homemade cakes and is fully licensed.
