Monday: We depart during the morning and travel south arriving at our hotel for check-in
Tuesday: A day at leisure in Weymouth. Weymouth’s streets have lots of character, with
many Georgian buildings interspersed with more modern structures. One of the town’s few
remaining Tudor houses has been well-preserved and offers guided tours in the summer
months. New Bond Street, St Thomas Street and St Mary Street form a large pedestrian
area bursting with spacious modern shops and occasional street performances.
Wednesday: We leave after breakfast visiting Lyme Regis and West Bay. Our return
journey takes us along the Jurassic Coast, across the Chesil Causeway to the Isle of
Portland with breathtaking views.
Thursday: Today we travel the short distance to Dorchester. A delightful market town filled
with some of the strangest and most interesting museums in England: the award winning
Dinosaur Museum, the Tutankhamun Exhibition (a spectacular re creation of
Tutankhamun’s tomb and treasures), the Terracotta Warriors Museum, the Dorset County
Museum boasting the largest Thomas Hardy collection in the world, the Dorset Teddy Bear
Museum. An ideal place for a cream tea.
Friday: After breakfast we leave Weymouth and begin our journey home.
