Every corner of the UK is steeped with interesting history and unique stories to be told. A tour of Weymouth will uncover the history of the quay, the beauty of the beach and the exotic ancient flora.
Driving to new places can be stressful and tiring and can take a lot of fun out of a day in the country. So why not hire a limo for you and your family or partner to spend the day together without having to hover of road maps but pour over tourist brochures to decide where to go next.
The Brewers Quay is a converted Victorian brewery which is now home to a recreation of the site's historical origins. There is a Timewalk which will take you through the 600 year history of Weymouth, including visits to the speciality shopping village, Courtyard Restaurant, Discovery Science Museum and the Weymouth Museum.
The village store offers fresh local produce, including preserves, pickles, biscuits, cheeses and wines. The Sweet Sensations candy shop will make the mouth's of children young and old water, with its array of candy canes, sticks of rock, old fashioned sweets and pink sugar mice.
To refresh yourself after your exploring you can enjoy a beer from the Dorset Brewing Company and try their award winning ales. They are available at the local pubs or the village store.
Weymouth beach lies in front of a historic Georgian backdrop. It is also not just a plain old beach, but has traditional Punch and Judy shows during summer and is also the host of the International Beach Kite Contest. The beach is also famous for its intricate sand sculptures, created each summer too.
For a taste of the exotic right in your own backyard, visit Weymouth's Abbotsbury Subtropical Gardens. The gardens are 18th century valley gardens which benefit from the mild climate which allows plants such as palm, banana, bamboo and canna to thrive in the open. If you visit in the spring you will also see rhododendrons and magnolias. You can also visit a Mediterranean garden, a Himalayan glade and a New Zealand garden before making your way to the restaurant to regain your energy for a trip to the aviaries, the sculpture walk or to select from the plant shop.
After all of this exploring, shopping and sweets, you will be glad you hired a limo, because now the chauffeur is loading all of your packages and he will take you right to your door while you relax on the ride home.
