Weymouth Beach Reviews

Aug 12th 2020

Have been doing to Weymouth since I was a child with family, seen a lot of changes.
Still as beautiful as ever and a special place with my late father before he died of a painful death myelo fibrosis & cancer.
My grandparents owned caravans there before they finally moved there.
Weymouth is filled with unique charm & character you won’t find anywhere else in the UK. Actually the whole of Dorset is filled with unique charm & beauty that it should be given the gold award every year.
Perfect for families, couples, elderly & singles.
Weymouth has everything you can look for in a day out & holiday.
But a word to all us visitors & guests..
Weymouth & Portland & other areas of Dorset are Beautiful & exceptional for a reason, so let’s please all respect the county & the beaches & the wonderful people that help to keep it that way.
