Weymouth is a busy town and it has long been known as a seaport. George III lived in Weymouth. Today's Weymouth relies on tourism and is a popular resort with a busy seafront. This is deckchair land and it can get quite crowded.
Weymouth as you would expect, has good fishing and boating trips and high speed ferries operate from Weymouth harbour from the Channel Islands and France.
Nearby you have Abbotsbury Swannery and Abbotsbury Garden, Portland Castle, Corfe Castle and Chesil Beach.
