Another of our firm favourites, Weymouth. The town’s fine Georgian seafront is an impressive backdrop to the long arc of fine, golden sand, and the views from the bay are spectacular, stretching across the horizon taking in the World Heritage Jurassic Coastline. There are beautiful parks and gardens and there is a lot to do and see in particular the traditional old harbour and modern yachting marina are both full of colour and interest.
The 3 star Hotel Rex is situated on the Esplanade overlooking the stunning golden sands of Weymouth beach and the Jurassic coastline beyond. Originally built for the Duke of Clarence as his summer residence when King George III held the Royal Court in Weymouth. All of the bedrooms have en-suite facilities and tea and coffee making facilities. There is a lift that serves all floors.
Thursday From your front door to the waiting coach for the leisurely journey south making a stop in Salisbury with its fine medieval Cathedral before continuing on to Weymouth and the comfortable Hotel Rex, arriving mid-afternoon. After dinner there will be bingo and festive music to end the evening.
Friday We take a drive across the Chesil Causeway to the ‘Isle’ of Portland where we enjoy the superb views and the famous lighthouse then along ‘West Dorset Heritage Coast’ via Abbotsbury Swannery and Bridport to spend time in the delightful resort of Sidmouth. Tonight there will be a Christmas Dinner with crackers and party hats and a visit from Father Christmas which will be followed by bingo and entertainment.
Saturday A full day excursion to the beautiful New Forest National Park. We travel by way of Bournemouth to Lyndhurst and Brockenhurst before returning to the hotel. This evening is party time with a Candlelit Hogmanay Dinner and entertainment in the lounge to ‘Bring in the New Year.’
Sunday We depart after breakfast for a leisurely journey home after a fun filled pre- Christmas break.
