Lewis Stripp, General Manager at Weymouth College, comments: “We are really excited about being involved in the games, we have been involved in several legacy projects already and this is another great opportunity to capitalise on the games and invest in facilities that will benefit the wider community! Weymouth has a fantastic atmosphere during the summer and the addition of the Olympics and Paralympics this year will really add to the buzz!”

Great activities / places of interest within walking distance
There are frequent buses running from just outside the Sports Hub into Weymouth Town Centre, and you can also cycle or walk and enjoy a glimpse of the coastline along the way. On the days when you don’t have tickets you can enjoy Weymouth beach, and in the evenings there is a vast array of bars and restaurants along the bustling harbour to keep you entertained! This site is perfect for families or groups of friends who are also keen to enjoy some of Weymouth’s seaside attractions as well as the games!
Great activities / places of interest a little further afield

Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door, a sight of outstanding natural beauty, is only a 30 minute drive away and is well worth a visit.
