Weymouth station sign

Weymouth is the terminus of both the South Western Main Line from London Waterloo and the Heart of Wessex line from Westbury. A sunny summer's day provided the opportunity for our visit and a wander along the now-disused Weymouth Harbour Tramway to Weymouth Quay.

The station's modern frontage, dating from a 1980s rebuilding:
