Celebrate Father’s Day in Weymouth and Portland.
On Sunday 19th June and take advantage of some of the best activities the area has to offer. Whether your Dad is an adrenaline junkie or enjoys a cool pint on the harbourside; Weymouth & Portland is a perfect location to spoil him!
Fishing is the classic activity to spend time with your Dad on Father’s Day and with Weymouth & Portland being on the coast, there are plenty of beautiful spots to choose from including;
- Stone Pier
Jutting out into the beautiful blue waters of Weymouth Bay with the historic Nothe Fort behind, the Stone Pier is a perfect place to drop a line. Access the pier by walking along and following the path to the mouth of the harbour.
- Chesil Beach
I’m sure you’ll be able to find a nice spot to sit down and cast your line out on this glorious 18km beach and who knows, if you can find the time to not stare at all the natural beauty around you, you might actually catch something!
Whether you enjoy long rides or short, Weymouth and Portland has an array of routes to choose from. Take a picnic with you and make a mid-way pit stop in the sun. To see the local routes; visit www.dorsetforyou.gov.uk/cycling/weymouthportland
If the British weather holds up to its name there always needs to be an indoor plan B – Weymouth’s bowling alley is a great way to spend a couple of hours with the whole family.
Time to watch the latest blockbuster! Your Dad will be spoilt for choice with the 9-screen cinema in Weymouth town centre. From an explosive action film to a side splitting comedy, they are being played at Cineworld.
Take the chance to ride out along the Dorset coastline and explore the parts that you only get to experience on the water – a must for all sporting Dads!
Time for some fast paced water action with the whole family into Weymouth Bay where the fun really happens. With a 20 minute trip reaching 40+ mph – this is not for the faint hearted!
Take your chance to win you and your family a FREE 3 course meal for four. All you have to do is one thing, let them know dads best DAD JOKE!
Or, if your Dad is just wanting a few hours to relax, taking him to one of the many bars, pubs, restaurants or cafes around is a perfect way to spoil him.
