Weymouth is a popular seaside resort in the beautiful county of Dorset, in the south west of England. There is a beautiful beach and a picturesque harbour, which is busy with fishing and sailing boats. There are street cafés, a good variety of small and large shops, a cinema, a bowling alley, a swimming pool, tennis courts, go-karting, disco, golf, a sea-life centre, a skate park and lots more to do and see in the area.
The Isle of Portland, where some of our students stay, is joined to the mainland by a bridge. The island, with a history of smuggling and pirates, has its own distinct character.
Weymouth and Portland are on the "Jurassic Coastline", a 95 mile stretch of coastline awarded World Heritage Status by UNESCO. This coastline is famous for fossils and fossil-hunting is one of the many activities which we run during the summer.
Chesil Beach, a shingle beach made up of 100 million tons of pebbles, runs for 29 kilometres along the coast from here.
