Travellers using TripAdvisor have voted Weymouth beach as one of the top 10 in the country.

It's moved up from number 9 to number 7 in the rankings of the UK's best beaches.

Dorset actually features three times in the table with Hengistbury Head in 4th place and Sandbanks making 9th place in the table.

Weymouth Beach - Weymouth & Portland Borough Council Tourism and Culture brief holder Cllr Ian Bruce, said, "It is fantastic news that Weymouth Beach has once again been recognised as one of the top beaches in the country.
