Weymouth Harbour is one of the prettiest in the UK and it is easy to see why. There are colourful cottages, fine restaurants and inviting pubs dotted amongst Georgian architecture and interesting alleyways, leading to quaint shops (and more pubs!) All this and Tall Ships as well!

Because of its peace and picturesque charms, thousands of visitors enjoy strolling along the harbour side and watching the many pleasure craft and fishing vessels coming and going.

We also have several veteran boats from World War Two which were used in the Dunkirk evacuations (as seen in the movie). Part of the film shows the Harbour, right behind Aaran House. Weymouth Harbour was the embarcation point for 450,000 trooops during  WW2.

We also see training ships, both sailing vessels and modern patrol craft.
