In Weymouth there are many pleasant spots around the busy harbour. Brewers Quay with its variety of restaurants and shops offers something for everyone. The Nothe Gardens are nearby and a walk to the end of the old stone pier provides a good location for fishing and lovely views back along the Georgian seafront.
The traditional seaside pastimes of Punch and Judy, roundabouts and swings are all present on the wonderful golden sands.
At Lodmoor there is a Country Park, Nature Reserve and The Sealife Centre with much to interest the children.
There is also a Nature Reserve on Radipole Lake and RSPB centre complete with hide.
From the ferry terminal it is possible to take a day trip to the Channel Islands or travel to France.
