As a popular family seaside resort with a long, golden sandy beach and a picturesque harbour, it’s easy to see why hotels in Weymouth are becoming more popular. With services to the Channel Islands and France, you can even extend your short break onto the continent relatively easily. The town is located half-way along the spectacular Jurassic Coast – to the west is the Isle of Portland connected to the mainland by Chesil Beach making Portland harbour an ideal location for major sailing events.
