I wanted to write a little post about where to visit in Weymouth. Summer’s over but it’s a lovely place to do some sunny winter walks too.
Also with kids – it’s hard to make a decision on UK holidays as we’re not always blessed with great weather. My top places to visit for sunny days and also rainy days are below in no particular order.
Weymouth Beach Obviously! It has everything you need, a harbour, a mini fairground and amusements, donkeys and this time of year you can even take your dog!
Again everything you need to keep the kids entertained whilst having a coffee and admiring the stunning views from The Sunset Cafe or The Look Out Cafe. Go pebble skimming on this shingle beach!
Farmer Palmers Farm Park
A short drive away in nearby Wareham. There are some indoor things to do here including a play barn, but the outdoor activities like go karting, the huge play park and adventure huts, and feeding the animals are even more fun.
Just truly stunning! Has a small play area and lots of woodland sculptures to find! Great for a picnic. Also I’m told the squirrels are very tame here and eat right out of your hand!
For a trip on the rowing boat. For just £1 a lovely gentleman rows you from one side to the other, it’s nothing special but the kids love it and it’s a nice little thing to say you’ve done! ✅
Weymouth Sealife Centre Again it has some outdoor activities but can easily be enjoyed during the rain too. Get your photo taken with the piranhas and touch a spiney starfish, then head off to find Nemo and Dory!
On The Esplanade! The waiter’s in there are just fab. They are family friendly and the food is fresh and delicious. Even the kids pizza is amazing!
I know I keep saying it but if you’re on a caravan site get to their indoor entertainment. The kids LOVE it and it gives you time to sit and chill for a bit as the blue coats do all the work.
Again if you’re on a site, make use of their pools! A perfect way to get wet indoors! Even if you aren’t on a caravan site though, Weymouth has a number of leisure centres you can attend instead.
Waterside holiday park
This one is really for the adults, but why not pop along to Waterside holiday park and enjoy a bit of relaxation in the spa. I highly recommend a full body massage. The spa itself is only £16 to enter!
Enjoy the Jurassic coast and get a bit of traditional British Seaside in you.
Another couple of must visit places to eat are King Edwards fish & chips! The kids even get theirs in a bucket and spade that they can keep!! And if you’re fancying something a bit more decadent head to Pascal’s Patisserie on Brewers Quay!!
