We loved Weymouth the first time we saw it. It is a beautiful seaside town on the South-West coast with something for everyone.
The Isle of Portland
The Isle of Portland, where some of our students stay, has a history of smuggling and pirates and its own distinct character. The people there do not use the word “rabbit” as the animals are linked with bad luck on the island – you’ll find out why if you go on our Portland tour. You will also see Chesil Beach, the shingle beach made up of 100 million tons of pebbles which runs for 29 kilometres along the coast from here.
The Jurassic Coast
Another of our afternoon trips is to Durdle Door and Lulworth, where we go on a stunning clifftop walk to a beautiful beach and cove.
Dorchester is the county town and is not far from Weymouth. The Romans built a town here but there were people living here long before they came: Maiden Castle is a hill fort which was built around 2,500 years ago and can still be visited today.
