Weymouth is the ideal place for this Dorset discovery. There is Lyme Regis with its fossil filled cliffs and elegant Sidmouth with its promenade. Dorchester was immortalised by Thomas Hardy and is full of historic buildings and there is Bournemouth, perfect for a stroll on the beach or a leisurely walk in one of its many manicured parks.
Dorset’s natural beauty means walking, cycling and horse riding are popular activities, but there are plenty of other things to do in Dorset, both on and off the water. There is an abundance of family attractions, historic houses and gardens, golf courses, paintballing, even llama trekking and zorbing. There are water sports aplenty: fishing, canoeing, kite surfing, wind surfing, wakeboarding, swimming and, of course, sailing. In fact the waters off Weymouth and Portland are generally regarded as the best in Europe for sailing, which is why the area was chosen to host the sailing events during the London 2012 Olympic Games.
