Wandering along the quayside of Weymouth Harbour offers visitors to the town a front row seat to how a working fishing port operates today.


Children can spend many happy hours ‘crabbing’ on Weymouth Harbour while parents enjoy lazing around in the sunshine sunshine. Alternatively if you want to get out on the water there are a number of pleasure cruises or fishing trip boats where you can get the best views of the Jurassic Coast.

Restaurants & Pubs

  • Les Enfants Terrible  is set in the heart of Weymouth’s bustling harbour overlooking the local fishing boats.

Weymouth Harbour Events

The streets are buzzing each July when Weymouth Seafood Festival takes place over a weekend, every sort of seafood you can imagine is available to try out as well as mouthwatering food demonstrations.


Crabbing is a great way for the family to enjoy themselves on a nice summers evening. Make your way to the Old Rooms pub, where there are nearby shops selling crabbing equipment in a prime area for you to get underway. Please be aware that Weymouth is leading the way with a Crabbing With Kindness campaign and we ask that you follow these simple rules if you would like to enjoy this pastime. You will be given a leaflet with these rules when you buy your bait.

  • Use a bait bag, not a hook
  • Maximum of 3 crabs per bucket, return any fighting crabs
  • Replace sea water every 10 minutes, keep your bucket in the shade
  • Return all crabs to the sea gently
  • Take all kit and litter with you when finished, don’t leave it near the sea
