Best Things To Do & Days Out In Weymouth

Fossil hunting along the sandy beaches on the Jurassic coastline is just the start of the awesome things to do in Weymouth.

Pack your bucket and spade and head to Weymouth Beach. The soft sands are ideal for stretching out on on a warm summers day. If you want to get out into the water pedalos are available to hire in high season, or play a relaxing game of mini golf with the family.

If you’re looking for some sandcastle building inspiration then you’ve hit the jackpot on Weymouth family days out, as Sandworld Sand Sculpture Park should give you plenty of ideas. See giant sculptures of your favourite characters or landscapes towering above you, then head to the undercover sand pit to create your own!

The Sea Life Adventure Park and Tower will take you on an adventure both above and below the waves. Spot sharks, turtles and stingrays along with brightly coloured fish and lots more. The Tower takes you 53m above sea level and offers 360-degree panoramic views of the incredible Jurassic coastline, just don’t look down!

On wet days MFA Bowl Weymouth, Quasar Weymouth or Sharkys Play Zone will keep you dry and entertained. The play zone features a four level play frame, laserzone maze and a massive mini racing circuit for future Formula One drivers, or get ready to be armed-but-not-dangerous at Quasar and find out which of your family has the best aim!
