Why go?

To recapture the nostalgia of childhood family holidays. On Weymouth’s famously golden sands, Punch and Judy still hammer it out several times a day, near the donkey rides and carousel. For a British beach holiday any more quintessential, you’d have to bring out the cucumber sandwiches while swatting away wasps with sticks of pink rock.

A haven of simple pleasures – the Georgian Esplanade is a parade of penny arcades, tea rooms and chippies, dominated by a statue erected in 1810 in the king’s honour – Weymouth is more than its majestic beachfront. Slap on some sunblock and head out in a boat into some of the best sailing waters in northern Europe.

It also makes for the perfect jumping-off point to explore the Jurassic Coast ( – a 95-mile strip of sandstone cliffs and fossil-rich prehistoric shoreline 185 million years in the making. Gasp at its showstopping centrepiece, Durdle Door, a 200ft limestone arch formed by the erosive lapping of the waves. Hunting for ammonites along this Unesco-protected stretch will stoke any child’s dinosaur fever.
