Weymouth Harbour is the perfect backdrop to this tasty event. With over 80 stalls, mouth-watering seafood menus, celebrity chefs, Pommery champagne, local ales and a fabulous atmosphere, the festival also raises money for The Royal National Mission to Deep Sea Fishermen.

ITINERARY (subject to change)
Meeting time: 6.45pm the journey takes about 2 hours 48 minutes from London to Weymouth.
Hike: Weymouth to Durdle Door / Lulworth cove
9:30 am start
Hike distance: 10.98 miles (17.67 km) about 6 hours (could be shorter depends on walking speed). Packed lunch along the way
We'll arrive around 4.00pm.
Parts of the walk can be strenuous, with some sharp ascents and descents so please make sure you have suitable clothing and good hiking shoes. This walk is perhaps the most beautiful on the whole of the coastal path. There are some steep climbs up the chalk cliffs, but we'll be rewarded with stunning views of the World Heritage Jurassic coast, including Lulworth cove, St Oswalds Bay and Durdle Door.
The view from the top of White Nothe is excellent, with Ringstead bay below. We'll stop at Durdle Door as it's far prettier than Lulworth cove, and then walk to Lulworth.
We will leave the accommodation at around 10.00 am. We can keep our bags there and pick them up on our way back to the station.
