Weymouth Town in Dorset
Weymouth is a seaside resort in west Dorset. It is situated at the mouth of the River Wey on Weymouth Bay. Places of interest nearby are Chesil Beach, the Isle of Portland and the Nothe Fort.
Weymouth lies roughly mid-way along the World Heritage Jurassic Coast - an area important for its geology and landforms. Weymouth lies about 8 miles south of Dorchester and 5 miles north of the Isle of Portland.
The current population of Weymouth is about 53,000 people. Formerly concentrating on fishing, Weymouth is now a popular tourist resort and is home to several cross-channel ferries. Other pleasure boats and private yachts are also much in evidence. Nearby Portland Harbour held the sailing events of the London 2012 Olympic Games.
