#6 of 74 in Things to do in Weymouth
The tallest structure for miles, Jurassic Skyline is an enclosed, rotating observation deck with a height of 53 m (174 ft). It offers a bird's-eye, panoramic view of Weymouth Bay, Portland, and the Jurassic coast--a UNESCO World Heritage Site. As the deck ascends and descends, it takes two turns of 360 degrees. Take advantage of the 15-minute relaxed and smooth ride to take photos and absorb the view. Plan your visit to Jurassic Skyline and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Weymouth tour planner.

  • Booked tickets online to take my parents for a Father's Day treat & it had broken down. Told to call back once engineer had been. Called back twice & not mended. Have voucher to return within a year. Recommend phoning on the day, before you go!
  • Not much info in the commentary but great views from the top. Done it twice so we could see it all better. Could do with being longer but then they would put the price up. Was good as part of a day out but not worth a long trip on its own.
  • This is the first time I went to Weymouth. The sea front, although cold, was much different from the other seafronts I had been on along east anglia. The Jurassic Skyline Tower is quite the sight when walking along the seafront.
  • Great ride goes up slowly rotates 3 times u get great commentary then it cones down great ride u get a discount if u have just been to the sea life centre or u are a group
  • Shows of my great country so very well and if you go to sea life centre you can have a go for free great start to any holiday

Where to stay in Weymouth

Weymouth is a popular seaside resort, so book accommodations along the Esplanade, the coastal walkway, early because rooms at the hotels fill up fast. Consider a room or apartment inland for deals and peaceful nights.
