Dawn Rondeau, Chief Operations Officer at We Are Weymouth comments: “Here at We Are Weymouth our spring campaign ’We Are Exploring’ is focusing on our unique location along the Jurassic Coast; encouraging visitors and locals alike to get out and explore our amazing town and coastline. During the Easter break not only do we have our Dinosaur Trail but we have these brilliant events drawing people into the town and whilst here people will hopefully explore what else Weymouth has to offer. We have already had over 1000 scans of the dinosaur QR codes and the events from the Jurassic Coast Trust, Pavilion and the Palm House are perfect for children of all ages.”
As well as activities for children this Easter, Weymouth has so much to offer for all ages. After a day perusing a host of independent and big brand shops, why not stop for dinner in one of Weymouth’s award-winning restaurants or head to one of many live music menus. Don’t forget a cocktail or glass of wine on the seafront admiring the Bay.
