We Attract

Weymouth is a very popular tourist destination, attracting hundreds of thousands of visitors a year, both domestic and overseas. There's an estimated £180 million direct visitor spend, supporting 5,000 jobs.

As recently as 2010, the TripAdvisor "Travellers Choice Destination Awards" rated Weymouth as the fourth most sought-after travel destination in the world.

In July 2015 we became the latest town in the UK to benefit from Business in the Community's 'Healthy High Streets' programme. Backed by some of the UK's biggest high street brands, the programme aims to stimulate the creation of new jobs and increase footfall.

Certainly, if your business needs footfall, Weymouth is not a bad bet.
