Weymouth is a traditional resort set in a magnificent bay.  The harbour is bustling with colourful craft and the level promenade is ideal for a pleasant stroll, or even a much longer walk.  The RSPB have 2 reserves nearby and there is an excellent shopping centre a few minutes walk away.  Half board accommodation is provided at the excellent Crown Hotel, an original  Victorian building centrally situated by the inner harbour and pedestrian shopping area. All rooms are en-suite with TV/tea facilities and the hotel has a lift.

Provisional Itinerary:

Day 1: Depart the West Midlands mid-morning, heading south for a lunch stop near to Bristol. Continue in to Somerset, passing close to Glastonbury Tor, Yeovil and Dorchester, arriving in Weymouth mid-afternoon.
