Located at the heart of the World Heritage Jurassic Coast, Weymouth & Portland nestle perfectly next to one another and provide real contrast and variety at any time of the year.
The wonderful beach at Weymouth is deservedly famous, and amongst other attractions are the Brewers Quay Complex with its Timewalk, craft workshops and shopping village, the Nothe Fort, Sea Life Park and Lodmore Country Park. Weymouth has a wide range of retailers, and the busy shopping area has many cafes, restaurants, bars and inns.
From Weymouth you can take the bus to the fascinating land linked Isle of Portland.The Isle is home to many natural and themed attractions including the lighthouse, museums and the famous Chesil Beach. The Weymouth & Portland Holiday Brochure contains information about what to do and where to stay, and is available from the Tourist Information Centre on 01305 785747.

Weymouth station is run by South West Trains, who work closely with the local teams of station adopters. The lovely flowers both inside and outside the station are the work of Brian and Janna Coomber, and our other Weymouth based supporter, Andy Hutchings, won a national award for his Outstanding Volunteer Contribution in 2008. Amongst the many projects Andy has been involved in is a passenger count survey, which has helped to ensure that extra capacity on the trains is supplied for the busy holiday season.
