Things to see and do while camping in Weymouth

Sea and sand are, of course, some of Weymouth’s biggest assets. There are also plenty of places to visit and things to see all around Dorset, within easy reach of Weymouth.

Coastal fun in Weymouth

The award-winning Weymouth Beach is well sheltered and has a gently sloping seabed so is ideal for swimming, water sports, or simply relaxing by the water. The harbour is just a short walk from the beach with restaurants, cafes, and plenty of shops to amble around.

Camping in Weymouth puts you in the heart of the Jurassic Coast so there are many ways to appreciate the 96-mile stretch of coastline.

Stretching from West Bay to Portland, Chesil Beach is one of Dorset’s most iconic landmarks. The shingle beach is known for it’s rugged and wild surroundings. Backed by the Fleet Lagoon, a Site of Special Scientific Interest, it’s a wildlife haven. You can learn about the birds and other wildlife at the Chesil Beach Visitor Centre.

Weymouth Esplanade provides all you’d expect from a traditional seaside town, including Punch and Judy shows, fairground rides, lots of ice cream and much more. Here you’ll also find SandWorld, which is home to marvellous sand sculptures and is one of the top family attractions in Weymouth.

Attractions for everyone in Weymouth

There is so much to do within Weymouth itself and across Dorset but here are a few of our top picks:

  • Nothe Fort was built to protect Weymouth Harbour in the 1860s. Whether you visit to enjoy the incredible view from the ramparts or are interested in the fort’s Second World War involvement, this makes a great visit.
  • Looking out on the cliff facing Portland, the ruins of Sandsfoot Castle are another popular attraction in Weymouth.
  • Weymouth SEA LIFE Adventure Park is ideal for a family-friendly day out. Home to over 2,000 creatures, including penguins, sharks, sea turtles, otters and many more.
  • RSPB Weymouth Wetlands at Radipole Lake Nature Reserve is home to spectacular birds and even animals like otters and water voles. A great spot to visit for wildlife lovers.
  • If you’re planning on visiting the Isle of Portland during your Weymouth camping holiday, you’ll find plenty to do. Portland Bill Lighthouse has the classic red and white striped appearance, and if you climb the 153 steps to the top, you’ll be treated to magnificent views from the windows. You’ll find cafes, pubs and restaurants across the Isle, so there are many options for grabbing a bite while exploring.
  • Fossil hunting is, of course, a must when visiting the Jurassic Coast. Ringstead Bay is close enough to Weymouth for a day trip and one of the best places to go fossil hunting in Dorset.
  • The River Wey, where the name Weymouth came from, is five and a half miles long, so you can easily walk the whole length. At the source of the river is a natural spring called the Wishing Well, which is a lovely spot to visit, make your wishes and enjoy the Wishing Well Tearooms.
