Weymouth & The Dorset Coast

Weymouth & The Dorset Coast

Based at the Crown Hotel




8 DAYS FROM £606


Set in a breath-taking Bay and surrounded by rolling Dorset hills, Weymouth’s popularity as a seaside resort is attributed to King George III who came to bathe in the sea as a health cure. The beach here is superb and sweeps around the bay along the extended promenade to the busy harbour with its ancient stone pier, from which all manner of craft set sail. The town is noted as one of the top angling venues in the country and along with golf, cycling, walking and bowling, the opportunity for leisure is endless.


Our base in Weymouth is the comfortable CROWN HOTEL which is located in an extremely favourable position at the top of Weymouth’s town centre, next to the Town Bridge overlooking the historic fishing harbour, and just a few minutes’ walk from the picturesque Brewer’s Quay. Weymouth’s beautiful sandy beach and the ferry service to the Channel Islands are less than 5 minutes’ walk from the hotel. Features of the hotel include a restaurant, lounge, and bar where there is evening entertainment. All of the en suite bedrooms have tv and hospitality tray. A passenger lift serves all floors but please note some stairs on all floors make this hotel unsuitable for those with walking difficulties.
