holiday: south UK

So... last year we went to Paignton, the first time England!

That was great.
This year we want to visit Weymouth.

So we like to know, which places should we visit?
and..
Maybe in the way back to Dover there are some kit-car traders we could/should visit ?

Thanks for your advise!





Please feel free to correct my bad English, i'm still learning. Your Dutch is awfull! :-)

Not very close to Weymouth, but my favourite place in the west country is Croyde Bay near Barnstaple in North Devon. Lovely beach and nice campsites & pubs.

If you dropped a bomb on it in in August you would takeout 90% of the VW Camper vans in the UK.

Bovington tank museum is worth a vist, Lulworth cove is nearby. Nothe fort in Weymouth is interesting.
Dorchester Market worth a visit, its on 2 days a week I think, also Dinosour museum for the kids.

Croyde is awesome (my home break back in the day!). Well worth checking out the south coast of Cornwall. It is beautiful, and virtually no crowds as they all head to the North coast. Well worth a trip to Fowey, Looe, Falmouth etc, plus all the little coves along the way...

Alternatively, the Isle of Wight is also well worth a visit (I go there every day, but I only really visited it once and loved it!). It feels like even more of a holiday too, as you have to take a boat to get there!

South Devon also has plenty of other lovely areas - particular favourites include Bantham/Bigbury/Burgh Island, Salcombe and Dartmouth.

I'll second Bovington Tank Museum, I'm sure I heard somewhere they have more tanks than the British Army.

Every Tuesday evening, April - Sept, Poole Quay. Bike night - up to 2000 bikes on a good night.

May - August, Poole Quay. Poole Quay, themed car event every Friday evening 6pm-9pm.

The tank museum is ok but once youve seen 10 tanks they are all the same.

However Monkey world is much better (the mrs made me go) and I really enjoyed it.

Another vote for Croyde, if you like getting in the sea, you cant beat it, me and the wife went to Bude for our honeymon 6 months back, its pretty quiet but we loved it, kids stayed with grandparents, we spent the week in a remote farm cottage, surfing during the day, PERFECT

Cornwall/Devon is my lottery dream place to live. The people are great and the views are amazing.
