    We walked along the promenade of Weymouth beach on a Sunny afternoon in August whilst on a visit to the town. We had driven to Weymouth and whilst there is a good amount of (pay & display) parking available, arriving around lunchtime there were very few spaces free.
    The beach at Weymouth is quite expansive and on the day of our visit busy with sun worshippers and families though not ‘packed’, the sand looked to be very clean and fine, ideal for young families to enjoy. There are plenty of refreshment outlets lining the promenade, where the visitor can but anything from ice creams, hot and cold drinks and meals & snacks. Public toilets are also available and along the promenade are deck chair hire facilities and a good number of public benches to rest on.

    Visited the Fort whilst we were staying in Weymouth. Very interesting place and well worth a visit. Spent a few hours looking round as there is a lot of interesting information all around to see and read. There is a nice little cafe and lovely gardens. All in all time well spent.

    A very interesting beach. No sand. Just pebbles, or some may called stones. Just that. Pebbles. On the Portland side, near the cliffs there were some divers. Here we parked 'free' but be on the lookout for traffic wardens. On the bridge site, there is a metered car park from where you walked UP to the beach which forms the start of the tombola that stretch miles westward. Crossing the bridge that join Portland to Weymouth the beach is slightly different. Many waters ports activities were going on. It is also home to the Portland national sailing academy. First time seeing some good parasurfers.

    The various sand sculptures have been well done and look impressive, covering a wide range of subjects. Well worth a visit and there is a quiz to do on your way round.

    We went 1/09/22, the park was clean and tidy, the staff were lovely and helpful too. We didn’t realise they had a small kiddy pool and water splash zone (luckily we had swimming stuff in the car) and the kiddo loved it! We had a great day out, only thing I would ask to be improved on is a bigger selection of food around the park as options were very limited!

    Beautiful well maintained gardens with a huge amount of non native trees. We can imagine that spring must be beautiful with the rhododendrons. Good walking shoes required particularly for the brisk steep walk up to the top of the hill for the amazing view over Chesil Beach. Paths easily marked for people with walking difficulties. The rope walk over the pond was fun. We were lucky to spot a nuthatch going up one of the trees. The lily pond was lovely especially with the story characters in the pond.
    We finished with some delicious cake and coffee at the end.

    Absolutely fantastic experience with Gary. He was so passionate about British wildlife and we really enjoyed learning about badgers, foxes, deer, owls, sheep and squirrels! We also learnt how to forage and how to survive off the land. It is a very simple concept and on the ARV you don’t travel far but Gary’s passion made this an unforgettable addition to our holiday. My 7 and 3 year olds were transfixed throughout and the homemade sheep biscuits at the end really topped off the personal experience offered by this team. Highly recommended.

    Visited many years ago so thought it was worth another visit. It was lovely to see all the swans including a few black swans which are quite unusual. We were there at feeding time. Usually children are invited to help but because of bird flu this was not possible so we watched as the keepers wheeled a barrow full of feed to the eager swans waiting for their lunch!
    We also walked around the area and there were benches all around so we could just sit and watch the world go by.
    Thoroughly enjoyable.

    We only visited briefly but it was amazing. Shame we couldn't go inside but since the ids have done Henry VIII and everything that goes with him, it was worth a visit

    What a beautiful garden to walk through, it has a cafe there too and toilets close by. The views from here out to sea are stunning, that is if you can take your eyes off the gorgeous flowers.

    The water gardens were peaceful and beautiful to walk around, with some lovely features along the way - bridge, gazebo etc. As stunning as the gardens are, it is perhaps a one hour visit, and the £11 admission charge seems a little steep and perhaps explains why it wasn’t busier. The cafe has wonderful views but the food was rather average. The lady on the desk was very friendly but we wish we had known about the annual membership!

    Lovely area with lots of beautiful walks and scenery. I would recommend going to the lighthouse and also the quarry where the stone has been sculpted into lots of different scenes. Would visit again.

    I had a 1 hour solo snowboard lesson.
    As someone who has never attempted anything like this before I was very nervous.
    From the moment I entered inwas out at ease. Everything was explained and the team were wonderful. From putting on the boots, strapping into the board and explaining the basics.
    I had a great instructor (Jack) who was patient but also pushed me beyond what I thought possible in an hour. Backwards and forwards ... Toes and heals!!
    Slope was in great condition and the whole area was clean and tidy
