For many, Weymouth brings back the nostalgic memories of a golden era of British seaside holidays. For over a century, this Dorset town has attracted city families who come for the clean, salty air and the long swathe of golden sand beach. Along its esplanade, backed by a row of elegant period properties overlooking the sea, visitors in colourful, striped deckchairs lick ice creams or gorge on fish and chips. Today though, Weymouth has grown up, with trendy seafood restaurants that take advantage of their proximity to the ocean, a harbour jam-packed with bobbing yachts and a long list of things to do that go beyond just donkey rides along the beach.
There's something about Weymouth bed and breakfasts that just works so well in this seaside town. Maybe it's the personal touches that you just don't see in the larger hotels or the local knowledge you can glean from the Weymouth-born owners. Either way, you'll find that the bed and breakfasts in Weymouth are much more varied than their hotel counterparts. Some are housed in the gorgeous waterfront-facing properties that line up along the beach, offering scenic views over the ocean in period feature-laden surroundings. Others are trendy boutiques whose whitewashed decor and seaside-inspired furnishings look like they jumped right out the pages of an interior decorating magazine. Of course, there are budget options aplenty, and if you'd rather save your cash for the nightlife or attractions their low-cost guestrooms might be just the ticket. Finding a Weymouth B&B couldn't be easier, using the Expedia website, where you can browse the properties' photos and descriptions and book the perfect match.
Though the properties all differ, one of the things that makes staying in a B&B most appealing, there are certainly facilities you can expect to find in most. Guestrooms are typically spacious and have private ensuite bathrooms, free WiFi is a given and a hearty full English breakfast will be served every morning. If you pick right, you could nab a bed and breakfast with free parking or find somewhere pet friendly, so you can bring your furry friend along to your seaside bolthole, too. If you're not on a budget, you could score a room with views looking directly out over the beach and the ocean beyond. Exploring the rest of the UK? The big West Country city of Bristol lies just a little north of Weymouth.
With Weymouth being next to the sea, it shouldn't come as a surprise that many of the town's attractions and things to do are focused around the ocean. Big hitters include the Weymouth SEA LIFE Adventure Park, which takes visitors on a journey through the depths of the ocean, with face-to-face encounters with sharks, sea turtles and seahorses, plus many more sea creatures. Kids will love the daily feeding demonstrations, as well as the Caribbean Cove, an ocean-inspired outdoor adventure playground. The newest edition to Weymouth's 19th-century pier is the Jurassic Skyline, where a spherical pod takes visitors 174 feet up for picture-perfect 360-degree views over the coastline and sea.
If you can tear yourself away from the beach, there is history aplenty near your Weymouth bed and breakfast, if you know where to look. The military stronghold of Sandsfoot Castle was constructed near Weymouth by Henry VIII, to keep invaders at bay, while the Victorian Nothe Fort now serves as a historical museum, complete with an eerie labyrinth of tunnels. Alternatively, you could admire a fine example of Tudor splendour in town or see the remnants of a Roman settlement just outside.
