About Weymouth

How can I find hotels in Weymouth?

Enjoy the fun of a traditional seaside resort when you book a hotel in Weymouth. The highlight is the 3-mile long beach but Weymouth doesn't just rely on the sun and summer holidays. You can find cheap hotels with Opodo at any season of the year. It is always fascinating to watch the activity at Weymouth's historic harbour which is lined with excellent restaurants serving the best of the day's seafood catch. Narrow streets around the harbour are lined with pretty terraced cottages once lived in by local fishermen and independent shops selling everything from beach supplies to local crafts. In contrast to the cottages of the harbour, the promenade flanking the beach is fronted by elegant Georgian and Victorian houses many of which are now hotels. And, when you take advantage of Opodo hotel deals in Weymouth, beautiful countryside and seascapes are on the doorstep from Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door to the Cerne Abbas Giant and Abbotsbury Swannery.

What can I see in Weymouth?

The beach at Weymouth was what originally drew King George III to the town. He visited to benefit from the sea's health-giving properties and thus started the town's rapid development. Step out from your hotel in Weymouth and stroll along the beach or promenade to the harbour and enjoy coffee or lunch as you watch the bridge going up and down to let boats pass through. You will pass the seafront statue of King George and the Jubilee Clock. This colourful clock was built to celebrate Queen Victoria's jubilee in 1887. Among the harbour's pastel-coloured cottages is The Tudor House. Dating from the 17th century, it now houses a museum. History buffs should also look out for a cannonball lodged in a wall. A relic of the English Civil War, you will find it where Maiden Street and St Edmunds Street meet. Children always enjoy exploring forts and castles but there is plenty for all ages at Nothe Fort. Built in 1872, this huge fort played an important part in WWII. Today you can explore its maze of underground passages which even include a Cold War bunker as well as walk its ramparts and visit the museum. Twice a month on a Sunday, its antique cannons are fired by uniformed volunteers.

Where to stay in Weymouth?

Away from the harbour and beach, you can also book a hotel in the quieter areas of Wyke Regis, Greenhill and Bowleaze or visit Opodo to find hotel deals along the Jurassic Coast. This coastline is now a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site that celebrates nearly 200 million years of geological history. You don't have to spend long on any of the coastline's beaches such as Chesil Beach to find a fossil or two. Local shops have guides on how to search for them without damaging the environment. Long and pebbly, Chesil Beach is also a good place for watersports including paddleboarding, kayaking, windsurfing and kitesurfing or if you want more adrenaline-fuelled water activity take a RIB ride from Weymouth Harbour. The island of Portland is within easy reach of Weymouth and another place to find hotel deals. Visit Portland Bill lighthouse and the sculpture gardens created from old Portland Stone quarries. This stone was used on many London landmarks such as St Paul's Cathedral and Westminster Abbey. Search for a hotel in Weymouth by visiting Opodo and setting its filters for location, room type, price and date.
