This is the England of hills, valleys and great scenery. It is fortunate to have a great coastline too, as we discover when we get to Weymouth. A fine sandy beach and a lively harbour are in a resort sheltered by Portland Bill. Enjoy the attractions and what is included on one of our longer weekend tours.



In the centre of the Victorian Esplanade and just across the road from an excellent beach, the comfortable hotel is in the Kings Hotels group. All bedrooms en suite with telephone, TV, tea/coffee making. Lift, bar, restaurant, entertainment.
