Weymouth Harbour Events
One of the most pleasant things to do in Weymouth is to spend time in the Harbour. Whether you’re sampling seafood, listening to live music or just taking the sun.
The north side of the Harbour (outside the Rendezvous) is the popular Weymouth Harbour Events venue which is home to free outdoor music weekends, with a stage erected next to the Town Bridge. Many hours can be lost just sitting outside the Harbour pubs, watching the live music. You can keep track of the time by watching the Town Bridge lift every two hours, to let the millionaires’ yachts through into Weymouth Marina.
If you are around the Harbour on Christmas Day, you can watch hundreds of people braving the cold to raise money for local charities, by taking part in Weymouth Harbour Swim.
A summer’s day on Weymouth Harbour is an event in itself, whichever side you choose. On the north side, there are several pubs and restaurants with outdoor seating, where you can soak up the sun. On the South side, the children can grapple with crabbing while you relax and enjoy the laid-back friendly atmosphere. Take a seat on the Harbour wall outside The Old Rooms Inn and just watching the to-ing and fro-ing of the boats in Weymouth’s ever-fascinating working Harbour.
