Weymouth’s Dinosaur Trail returns!
We Are Weymouth (BID) is excited to announce the return of the popular dinosaur trail for 2023, installed throughout Weymouth from 12th February to the 26th March. This year the trail features 5 life-size dinosaurs installed throughout the town, as well as a Dino PAW trail, all kicked off with a dino-tastic launch event on 12th February. Included in the launch will be baby dinosaurs and their handlers, a giant dinosaur egg for photo opportunities, and visits from walking and growling dinosaurs; the spinosaurus and raptor – children beware!
Alongside this awesome event, a Dino PAW trail and workshops will be held in businesses throughout the town – perfect to help keep the kids entertained this February half term and beyond and unbelievably, everything is free to attend!
We Are Weymouth (BID) would like to invite all budding palaeontologists, dino aficionados and even local tiny dinosaurs to get their costumes ready and explore the trail!
Dawn Rondeau, Chief Operations Officer at We Are Weymouth comments: “The 2022 dinosaur trail in Weymouth was such a huge success, drawing visitors and locals out to explore the town and celebrate our Jurassic history, that we really wanted to build on that in 2023. We are excited to offer new dinosaur installations in many unusual locations, plus enhance it with a free dinosaur PAW trail.
To kick the Dino activities off we are excited to be delivering a fabulous, free to attend, launch event in the town centre (and promenade if weather permits). The launch is set to be a dinosaur spectacular with baby dinosaurs and their rangers, and visits from a Spinosaurus and a Raptor!
With workshops taking place in businesses throughout the town, the PAW trail (with great prizes to be won) and life-size dinosaurs, we’re offering a lot ‘to-do’ whilst really connecting to our Jurassic past and engaging with the younger generations. We hope to see the whole family, out to enjoy some Dinosaur fun this February and March.”
Head to Bowleaze Cove and The Lookout Cafe, The Palm house at Swannery Walk, The Nothe Tavern, Nautico Lounge as well as the Royal hotel to discover all the dinosaur installations. With QR codes at each point, visitors can learn all about each dinosaur and the Jurassic Coast.
