There are many festivals held around Weymouth harbour and the area throughout the year. There are plenty of activities and gardens to visit.
Always an interesting few hours can be spent looking around, and perhaps buying, at the local weekly markets and monthly farmers markets in the area.
“Dippy” the dinosaur is on tour and is visiting Dorchester museum from February next year for 4 months.
The Dorset coast has been caught on camera again this year, as the third and final series of “Broadchurch” was shown in the spring. Also some of the film Dunkirk was shot around Weymouth harbour and filming is also taking place of “Mary Anning” the famous fossil hunter at Lyme Regis.
Fossil hunting is a popular activity along the Jurassic coast but do be careful because of sudden land slips.
