Removals in Weymouth – some info for anyone interested in moving to this beautiful part of Dorset. Situated 20 miles East along the coast from the Northover and Gilbert headquarters here in Bridport, Weymouth is a charming traditional seaside town featuring Georgian houses and a Victorian Jubilee clock. It is also part of Dorset’s Jurassic Coast, located about halfway along this UNESCO World Heritage site. The golden sands and safe shallow waters here are coupled with many traditional English seaside pursuits including Punch and Judy, trampolines, pedalos and donkey rides during the summer along with American import beach volleyball. There is also a thriving live music and club scene.

But what is it like to actually live in Weymouth?

In and around Weymouth

There is plenty to see and do in the local area. Weymouth has a beach and a harbour and is in close proximity to many other beautiful places to visit including Portland, Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door (pictured below).

If you’re moving to Weymouth with your family there are some great schools in the local area, including Primary schools Beechcroft St Paul’s and Southill and Secondary schools All Saints Academy and Budmouth Academy. The travel links are pretty good too, with road links via the A354 a good bus service and a railway station that connects with London Waterloo.

Set back from the beach you will find a pretty good range of shops and the town has an Asda, Sainsburys and Morrisons to choose from, for your weekly groceries.

Weymouth is primarily a tourist resort and it is a little quieter in the winter so if you are seeking hustle and bustle then it is important to bear this in mind and perhaps visit during the quieter months as well as peak season if you are unsure about how you will feel about living through the quiet or busier times.
