About the neighbourhood
Dorset's beautiful and dramatic scenery has long made the county a favourite with writers, poets and film crews. Jurassic cliffs plunge alongside picturesque harbour towns and coastal resorts, providing an impressive backdrop for the many popular Dorset holiday destinations. Sandsfoot castle that you can see from 'Little Gem' was primarily built as a decoy in 1539 by Henry VIII, another castle built during the same period, mirrors Sandsfoot and lies at sea level to the opposite side of the bay on Portland. Portland castle is not easily visible from the sea and its intention was to provide a surprise attack on the Spanish fleet during invasion. It is believed that neither castle came under attack, and never actually got to use their weapons. Tours of Thomas Hardy's Dorset are operated fr...
Getting around
Local bus stop into town just 5 min walk located at top of Old Castle Road then 5 minutes into town centre. Also Jurassic coast bus goes from Poole to Exeter and stops in Weymouth every hour bus number X53. An excellent way to see the Jurassic coastline stopping off at most seaside resorts along the way.
