Other Attractions
There are many things to do within the borough, with many of them open all year round!

Cinema
Cineworld is the only cinema that is in Weymouth. This is located right in town center, right next to Debenhams on New Bond Street. The cinema has 9 screens showing the latest blockbusters, as well as showing classic films on Monday afternoons and kids films on Saturday mornings. The cinema is relatively modern and has all the facilities you would expect.
You can get the up to date listings and prices at www.cineworld.co.uk

Money Saving Tip: This cinema takes part in the Orange Wednesday promotion, where you can take two people to the cinema for the price of one. Simply text film to 241 if you are on Orange. If you aren't on Orange, why not buy an Orange simcard for an old phone from www.orange.co.uk
Student discount is also available at this cinema. Look at their website for more information.

Your Opinion - Steve - 07/01/06
"Not the best cinema in the world as it does lack the leg room you would find in a cinema in a city, and the screens aren't that huge either, but for a good night out the cinema has to be a must" 3 Stars


Bennetts Water Gardens
Established in 1958, this is one of the most scenic and relaxing attractions in Weymouth. There are numerous lakes you can walk around, with lots of places to sit down and take in the beautiful surroundings. The gardens are also famous for their water lillys, and has also been featured on the BBC's Gardeners world.

Portland Lighthouse
For nearly 300 years a lighthouse has looked out over the turbulant water off Portland Bill. Now you can go to the visitor centre and take a tour of the lighthouse. Although it is at the end of Portland, there is a regular bus service.

Tout Quarry
Founded in 1983, this is a disused limestone quarry that is now set aside as a tourist attraction. There are many random sculptures dotted around the site, as well as the amazing views over Lyme Bay. You can also take a course in stone carving. This is located at the top of Portland, near the Portland Heights Hotel.
