Chesil Beach is a pebble beach, 18 miles long and it stretches west from Portland to West Bay. For much of its length it is separated from the mainland by an area of saline water called the Fleet Lagoon.

Fascinating Fossils

Fond chilhood memories of trawling slowly along the beach; the excitement at turning over each new stone that it might be THE ONE, the final resting place of some perfectly preserved prehistoric creature, lying in wait for thousands and thousands of years to be discovered. Would love to return and find some of those elusive ammonites one day.

Nearest walk

Moonfleet Walk (¾ mile)

Take a look at this lovely walk of five miles along the shoreline of Chesil Beach and watch the swans at Abbotsbury. Take a look at the southwest coastal path website for further information.

Nearest town

Weymouth (2 ¾ miles)

A town of two halves - the old town forms a cluster of quirky mismatched cottages around the harbour, while the new town is an elegant parade of Georgian town houses on the seafront.

Abbotsbury Swannery (3 ¼ miles)

Swans have lived here for 600 years; at around the end of May, visitors can watch cygnets taking their first tentative steps.

Abbotsbury Swannery

We spent a really good morning at Abbotsbury Swannery. The walks are pleasant and it is great to be around so many swans. Feeding time is one of the highlights and this takes place at 12.00 and 16.00. Children are invited to feed the swans and this was great fun. We had lunch there and can recommend the food.

It's a short walk from the entrance/shop to the swannery, but you can take a tractor ride which was fun but it does cost 50p each way per person. Also, there's a great maze to get lost in!

If you are taking the family, check out the opening times for the childrens farm. In September, it is only open at the weekends.

As featured on the BBC's Coast series (28/7/2010) - Abbotsbury Swannery in Dorset is unique. This is the only place in the world where you are able to walk through the heart of a colony of nesting Mute Swans. A visit to the Swannery is considered one of the best things to do in Dorset.

Combine your visit with a visit to Abbotsbury Gardens - both well worth the visit. Abbotsbury village itself it very attractive.

Abbotsbury Swannery is a good place for adults and children and they have a petting farm which has a small adventure playground and is very child friendly.

South Coast Equestrian (250 yards)

This equestrian centre is run by a very enthusiastic husband and wife team. With great knowledge in their industry, they offer a wide variety of equestrian services.

Weymouth Central Beach (2 ½ miles)

A sweeping arc of golden sand, Weymouth beach lies adjacent to the town centre. Thanks to its gently sloping sea bed, the bay is popular amongst swimmers and those looking to enjoy the water. With a host of things to do and see, from donkey rides to Punch and Judy, the beach is a hub of activity and there is even an allocated dog-friendly spot year-round.

Great beach close to amenities and with lots to do. Really cool beach for families and those who like to be where the action is, but not great for those looking for quieter spots as Weymouth tends to get really busy in the summer months.

Abbotsbury Subtropical Gardens (6 miles)

Planted as a kitchen garden in 1765 by the first Countess of Ilchester, today Abbotsbury Gardens bring together rare and exotic plants from all over the world. Scintillate your senses with a visit to the world famous camellia groves and magnolias, enjoy a sedate stroll in the walled gardens or go wild for the stunning woodland valley views. The BBC's Alan Titchmarsh declared them to be 'one of the finest gardens I have ever visited'. See for yourself. If it leaves your green fingers itching for some action, you can choose from a superb range of quality plants at the Specialist Plant Nursery.

Abbotsbury Sub-Tropical Gardens

20 acres of beautiful gardens with many exotic and tropical plants. Viewing point to Chesil Beach. Cafe. Beautiful gardens to wander round, full of colour and wonderful plants. Had a lovely lunch in the cafe. Near the village of Abbotsbury which is worth a stop to.

Brighten up Your Day

Even on a dull day, these subtropical gardens were a riot of colour -guaranteed to brighten up your day. If you are in the area for a few days, and especially if you have children, it's worth getting a Passport Ticket. This allows you to visit all three attractions at Abbotsbury - the gardens, swannery and children's farm - for a very reasonable price.

South West Artwork CIC (1 mile)
