Weymouth Port 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 round the Port in Weymouth, 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 Port was the embarcation point for 450,000 trooops during WW2.
The old railway tracks are still there, dating from 1865 (cyclists beware!) The Fish Market has recently been refurbished and is becoming a Mecca for seafood connoisseurs. The Rowboat Ferry crosses the water to the Nothe Fort and Gardens – another haven of peace and quiet. The ferry ride across Weymouth Harbour affords excellent views of the Port from an unusual angle. One may also hire charter fishing boats or water taxis to Portland.
