Season: spring

A weekend by the beach at Weymouth in decent weather is guaranteed to bring the crowds out and that was the case for this seasonal visit.  The fine arc of the beach encourages promenading along the esplanade, past the Victorian clock that stands out halfway along the walkway.  Concessions and entertainment were available to beach goers.  One of my interviewees, John, is part of four generations that have hired out donkeys on the beach here.

Weymouth was the venue for the sailing events at the 2012 Olympic Games, featuring the superb vantage points from the shore across the bay.  The town is situated on the Jurassic Coast and the sands and safe water of the sheltered bay are some of the finest in the country.  Throughout the year, the beach also hosts several major events, including the International Beach Kite Festival, Fireworks, Tag Rugby, Handball and International Volleyball.  The town is vibrant, up market and full of character, right next to the beach.

    The beach for me means solace, space, beautiful light and huge skies. It’s a place for a coffee, a glass of wine, a picnic, a paddle or something more adventurous like kite surfing or sailing. You get all that and more in Weymouth…. it’s incredible and right on my doorstep… I’m extremely lucky.
