Waves and (hopefully) sun worshipping in Weymouth!
James Macfarlane grabs his bucket and spade as he heads to Weymouth in Dorset for a spot of seaside fun, fossil hunting and sun seeking…
What could be better than lounging on a beach with nothing to do but lap up that quickly melting ice cream; keeping a watchful eye out for the odd hungry seagull of course! Good old ‘Blighty has a pick n mix of beaches to choose from around its coastline, but today we’re pointing you in the direction of Weymouth for your seaside break. All you need now is for the sun to put its hat on and you’re away!
Nestled in the South of England and showcasing all the trimmings of a traditional English seaside town, you can’t go far wrong with Weymouth. Historic county of Dorset is home to this perfect spot for sun worshiping, fish and chip munching and kicking off your explorations of a historic Jurassic coast, which is famous for the abundance of fossilised Dino remains.
Good news! If you find yourself flagging after a day of exploring the harbour, wave watching or fossil hunting, we know the perfect crash pad for you. Situated in the heart of Weymouth, just a small distance from the sea front and old harbour, Bunkhouse Plus is calling.
