Can anyone persuade me to stay in Bournemouth rather than Weymouth? I am looking to spend a week in Dorset during the summer hols and am favouring Weymouth. We are a couple with a 7 year old child, so nightlife isn't very important but don't want to go somewhere too quiet. I thought Weymouth might have a bit of a buzz due to the Olympic sailing and we have a chance of renting a flat just before it starts, though don't want to be there when it does due to congestion. Weymouth also looks more central for exploring the Dorset coast in general, ie, the Jurassic coast to the west and Durdle Door, Lulworth Cove etc to the east. All that said, Bournemouth looks like it might be a better bet for a family holiday, with its bigger beach etc but self catering seems more expensive. Basically I'm just trying to ask what's the nicer place for families? I don't know the area at all and would greatly appreciate any views to tip the balance either way. Many thanks!
