Moving to Weymouth

Thinking About Moving to Weymouth?

Weymouth has been on the up-and-up ever since it provided the stunning location for sailing events as part of the 2012 London Olympics. It has always been a favourite holiday location for British families, but pre-Olympic regeneration helped to make it a great place to live, too. Now the combination of Weymouth’s incredible location on the Jurassic Coast and the town’s ongoing growth, ensures its popularity with families from London, Essex, Kent and Suffolk looking to relocate.

Schepens has been providing local removals for people moving to Weymouth for over a century now. We’ve been thrilled to watch the town’s latest transformation – and the families we move, love living there. It’s our firm belief that the best way to learn about a town is to ask people who live in it. So we asked a number of our clients who are now locals, what it’s like living in Weymouth. Here’s what they told us:


1. Chesil Beach is a Miracle

This shingle beach runs from West Bay, through to Portland. As Chesil Beach nears Portland Island it becomes a thin ribbon separating the sea from the Fleet Lagoon. It’s an uncanny sight, especially if your view it from Abbotsbury where it looks almost unearthly. The Lagoon is home to the swan colony in Abbotsbury, but you’ll also see egrets, greenshanks and geese. I never tire of this natural wonder.

2. Lots of New People Moving In

One of the things that we’re loving about living in Weymouth is the number of people who, like us, have decided to move here from elsewhere. It makes it easier to make friends – because there’s others in the same boat. There’s also a great energy about the place; moving to Weymouth is a big decision but once you’re here you tend to put effort into making it work.

3. Plenty Going On, Winter and Summer

Some of our friends dread the summer because the town swells to twice its normal size with holiday-makers. We accept that it goes with the territory, and we know that when everyone leaves in September, we’ll have the place to ourselves pretty much. During the winter months the town’s pretty lively; it’s certainly not one of those places that ‘dies’ outside holiday season!

4. The Perfect Location for Kids

I’d always dreamt of moving to Weymouth, having grown up nearby. When the opportunity arose the kids hadn’t yet started school so it was perfect timing. We’re very happy with the quality of education they’re now getting, and completely in love with the place. Recently we discovered the beautiful Sandsfoot Castle, and we’ve been back there again and again.
