Get Active

Not for nothing was Weymouth chosen as the venue for the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Sailing Events: its natural features make it the perfect location for a wide range of sporting activities.

For the more energetic among our guests, sailing is still a big business in Weymouth. Just around the corner from The Leam is the internationally-renowned Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy which offers a range of courses from beginner to intermediate. What better location to learn to sail!

If paragliding, kayaking, paddlesports or even powerboating are more your thing, they are all available too.

In Weymouth you can swim, dive, fish on a lake or in the sea, take boat trips up the beautiful coast or simply relax in an Ocean Spa. Whichever watersport you prefer, Weymouth can provide it.

For more land-based activities, there are a choice of golf courses, equestrian centres, badminton and tennis courts. You can hire bicycles to explore the Jurassic coastline along the southern end of National Cycle Network route 26, or take the less-energetic Jurassic Safari four-wheel drive option.

You can jog along Weymouth’s gorgeous three-mile beach or simply walk – through Weymouth itself, around the fascinating harbour, out to Portland Bill to see the famous stone quarries, along the ancient coast or inland around Iron Age hill forts.

And the best bit? After an energetic day out, being able to come back and relax with a cool drink and a warm welcome at The Leam Bar.
