The West Country region
Dorset is a mostly rural county situated on the UK south coast. The undulating scenery provided by the Dorset Downs and Purbeck hills make excellent walking country whilst Poole harbour, the largest natural harbour in Europe, is the gateway to the Jurassic coast stretching west past Weymouth and Portland and along Chesil Beach, the world's longest pebble beach, to the sea fishing port of Bridport.
Weymouth is a seaside resort with the added charm of having an attractive harbour hosting both leisure and small scale commercial fishing activities. Situated on the Jurassic coast, Weymouth forms a hub for coastal and countryside exploration and is suited to all age groups. Throughout the summer, Weymouth and Portland have numerous special events and activities including those on the beach, evening fireworks displays, fishing trips, jet boat rides, tall ship sailing trips, glass bottom boat trips in the Fleet lagoon and daily scheduled fast ferry services for day trips to the Channel Islands some 80km away. Weymouth's website (http://www.visitweymouth.co.uk) provides a wealth of information on what to do and what's on.
Weymouth Bay and Portland Harbour offer some fine sailing and windsurfing conditions and are hosting these events for the 2012 Olympics. Facilities and tuition for most activities on and below the water are on hand.
Within easy reach, there's plenty to do for all ages - here are a few examples....
Close to Weymouth, the three fortifications originally to protect Portland Harbour (Nothe Fort, Portland Castle and ruins of Sandsfoot Castle) are within easy reach and are all well worth a visit. The Iron Age hill fort of Maiden Castle and the author Thomas Hardy's cottage are just outside the county-town of Dorchester some 10 km away. At Abbotsbury, the internationally renowned swannery is the only place you can walk through a colony of nesting Mute Swans. At the restored Lulworth Castle, attractions include jousting and outdoor concerts whilst at closeby Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door stunning rock formations provide a great backdrop for a refreshing swim! The world's largest armed vehicle exhibition is located at Bovington tank museum where tanks can be seen in mock battles every week (www.tankmuseum.org). Monkey World ape rescue centre provides a fascinating insight into primate and their behaviour (http://www.monkeyworld.org). You can go zip-lining at Ape Escape or take a trip to West Bay and Lyme Regis, both recommended. You'll struggle to find time to relax if you aren't careful!
