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. Kara, mom of 6, tried it with her kids and she has some tips for fossil hunting with your family

Pack your bucket and spade and head to Weymouth Beach. The soft sands are ideal for stretching out on on a warm summer's day. If you want to go for a family walk, why not stretch your legs with a little stroll along Weymouth Harbour?


 The Weymouth SEA LIFE Adventure Park 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! 


Nothe Fort is a great option for a full day out; and if you’re in the mood for some fairground fun with the kids, explore the fun activities at Fantasy Island Fun Park. Oh, and if your kids love farmyard fun, spend a day at Abbotsbury Children’s Farm
