Travel Tips for Weymouth

Weymouth "Pleasure Pier"

by johngayton

Something Weymouth doesn't do very well is its provision of a traditional seaside resort pier. There is a pier, completed in 1933, which is mostly a commercial one, built to service the ferries and cargo vessels, and what is called "The Pleasure Pier", but all that really consists of is a piece of concrete jutting out into the bay with a cafe and public toilets.

Personally I like this minimalist approach and whilst I've never visited the cafe nor used the loos there's something louche about this pier that no other in Britain can capture - it's a sort of real dead end.

There are plans to totally redevelop the site which include building a modern hotel, apartments and marina complex along with enhanced public spaces, a restaurant quarter, an upgrading of the ferry terminal and a revamp of the Pavilion Theatre at the landward end.

These certainly look interesting but work was intended to start in 2009 and ideally to be completed in time for the 2012 Olympics. However at the time of writing not a lot seems to be happening and the developers website doesn't have anything up-to-date in its press section.

Visit Thomas Hardy's Casterbridge

by lomi

The town of Dorchester is a 15 min bus ride from Weymouth. This is Hardy’s fictional “Casterbridge”, and the focus for several of his greatest novels.

Fans of Thomas Hardy, one of Britain’s greatest authors, will enjoy walking around Dorchester picking out buildings and places that featured in his novels.

The town is a great place to visit for shopping, coffee, lunch or just to wander. Many of the buildings, which , have a long history and many parts of the town have been relatively unchanged for well over a hundred years.

If you travel on a Wednesday it is the day of the weekly market, and gets extremely busy.
Also in the town are the General Museum, the Dinosaur Museum and Teddy Bear Museum.
