House Removals Weymouth
Weymouth is one of the UK’s most beautiful seaside towns, blessed with a sunny and warm climate. Weymouth is a gateway to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Jurassic Coast, and is a perfect location for exploring the scenic county of Dorset.
Weymouth is a hub of activity and those who live there benefit from having some amazing experiences on their doorstep. Walking, cycling, horse riding and fishing are traditional hobbies much loved in the town. Sandfoot Castle and Nothe Fort are also great historic attractions that can be enjoyed by everyone. You can also hop on the Condor Ferry to Guernsey and Jersey!

The Britannia Leatherbarrows of Dorset office is located just 1 hour from Weymouth, in Christchurch. We can help alleviate the stress associated with moving, and help your move to or from areas in Dorset as smooth as possible. We also offer a variety of storage services should your needs require it.
Eating Out in Weymouth
There is something to suit all palettes in Weymouth, from candle-lit fish suppers to authentic fish and chips served in newspaper. There are Chinese and Indian restaurants, as well as takeaways if you fancy a night in. There are also restaurants specialising in pizza and cider or pie and ale.
The harbour is full of family friendly pubs serving all the traditional favourites that are also incredibly good value. However, if you want something more refined, there are bistros overlooking the harbour serving fare straight from the ocean.
For those out and about during the day, Weymouth has a growing café culture. Enjoying a glass of wine or a coffee in Hope Square is a favourite, as are the gastrobars of the historic cobbled Brewery Square.
