Alexandra Gardens is the perfect spot to enjoy some good old fashioned English seaside fun! Enjoy the classic amusements, fairground style rides and yes, there’s enough candy floss to last a lifetime! The Amusements are, of course, indoors so it’s a great spot for some rainy day entertainment but the rides and close proximity to Weymouth Beach means the amusements can be a perfect spot for a sunny day or break from the beach.
History of Alexandra Gardens
Before the Amusements were in place, the gardens held a theatre which opened in 1924. It was converted to an amusement arcade in the early 1960s. The building was however destroyed by a fire in 1993 and replaced by the current building you can see today.
If you’re looking for a more traditional gardens experience full of wonderful flower displays then why not head over to Greenhill Gardens at the opposite end of the Seafront.
