– We Are Weymouth celebrates being ‘The Best’ with We Are The Best summer campaign –

We Are Weymouth proudly unveils its latest summer campaign, “We Are Weymouth: We Are The Best!”, celebrating the vibrant community, stunning attractions, and culinary delights that make Weymouth a standout destination. With accolades such as Britain’s Best Beach and the recent praise from Giles Coren, Weymouth continues to solidify its reputation as a premier destination for visitors and locals alike.

In 2023, Weymouth’s breathtaking coastline captured the hearts of visitors and garnered the prestigious title of Britain’s Best Beach by the Sunday Times. This recognition affirmed what locals have known for generations – Weymouth’s golden sands and crystal-clear waters are unrivalled. 

When it comes to staycations, Weymouth’s guest houses, B&Bs, hotels and holiday parks are some of the best in the world!  For example, Gloucester House, which dates back to 1790, was one of four UK B&Bs ranked in the top 10 in the world, by trip advisor awarded 2024 TripAdvisor “Best of the Best” Awards – No.3 Best Bed & Breakfast in the UK and No.8 Best Bed & Breakfast in The World.  Just along the scenic coastline is the Waterside Holiday Park at Bowleaze Cove, not only does it sit on the shoreline, its a 5* resort recently honoured at Hoseasons Holidays’ gala dinner, winning the Leisurely and Lively category award for the best holiday park in the South of England. 

Now you’ve got your accommodation sorted, it’s time to get something to eat in one of Weymouth’s many fantastic restaurants.  Bennett’s Fish and Chips on the harbourside came sixth on the list of the nation’s favourites compiled by the Times and Sunday Times – a must visit for locals and visitors. Adding to Weymouth’s culinary prestige, Catch at The Old Fish Market has been hailed by renowned food critic Giles Coren as the best restaurant in the world. With its dedication to fresh, locally sourced seafood and innovative dishes, Catch exemplifies the culinary excellence that defines Weymouth’s dining scene.

The accolades don’t stop there. Weymouth’s historic Nothe Fort has been named England’s Small Visitor Attraction of the Year, highlighting its rich history and unique visitor experience. From its commanding views of the Jurassic Coast to its immersive exhibitions, the Nothe Fort offers a glimpse into Weymouth’s storied past.

“Weymouth truly is the best-kept secret of the South Coast,” said Dawn Rondeau-Irvine, Chief Operations Officer of We Are Weymouth. “Our summer campaign aims to showcase the incredible diversity and charm that makes Weymouth a must-visit destination for travellers seeking unforgettable experiences.”

Beyond its accolades, Weymouth boasts a wealth of attractions, restaurants, shops, and a tight-knit community, all centred around its historic working harbour and picturesque beachfront. Whether exploring the town’s maritime history, indulging in world-class cuisine, or simply basking in the sun on the beach, visitors are sure to find something to love in Weymouth.  To really explore the town, there are a number of trails visitors can follow – delving deep into Weymouth’s vibrant art scene, or dramatic history:
