Weymouth Beach

Breathe in the salty sea air, savor hot fish and chips and take photos of the coastline as you amble along the Esplanade that follows the gentle curve of this beach.

With its mixture of soft sand and tiny polished pebbles and its colorful beach huts, Weymouth Beach is a scenic spot for seaside fun. It is part of the fascinating Jurassic Coast, which includes some of England’s most breathtaking landforms. Take the kids to this family-friendly haven to enjoy a picnic and cool off with a dip in the cold water.

Stroll down the wide Esplanade, which runs behind the beach. It is lined with quaint buildings and huts, housing shops selling souvenirs and food. As you walk, look for the King’s Statue, which depicts King George III, who visited this beach back in the 18th century when sea swimming was gaining popularity. Be sure to check out the bright red Victorian Jubilee Clock too.

You may also encounter some street performers and entertainers along this stretch. Bring the kids to a traditional Punch and Judy puppet show or make their day with a donkey ride. There are often sports events, live music and even firework displays held here in summer.

Make your way to Sculptures in Sand to see fascinating creations made from Weymouth Beach’s sand. Check out the impressive sand sculptures, some of which depict famous literary and film characters, such as Alice from Alice in Wonderland. Stop at one of the small restaurants to eat fish and chips, a British seaside staple.

The Weymouth Harbour provides more traditional seaside amusements and attractions. Ascend the Weymouth Sea Life Tower for unbeatable views of the Jurassic Coast from its 174-foot (53-meter) peak.

Weymouth Beach is situated about 35 miles (56 kilometers) west of the coastal city of Bournemouth on the south coast of England. A train southwest from London should take less than 4 hours. Once you arrive in Weymouth, board a bus or take a taxi to the beach.
