Eventbrite - Weymouth Leviathan: Maritime Literary Festival

Festival area (based on an 1824 map, and still remarkably the same):

Weymouth is a magnificent place to visit: a bustling town, with a wealth of historic and natural features, including its beautiful fishing and leisure harbour – where all the venues for Leviathan are located.

Weymouth Harbour

Weymouth has all the facilities one would expect to make your visit simple and enjoyable.

It’s served by a direct train from London Waterloo, taking 2 hours and 45 minutes, with stops including Basingstoke, Winchester, Southampton, Brockenhurst, Bournemouth and Poole.

Plymouth, Bristol, Oxford, West London and Chichester are all within a two and a half hour drive to Weymouth.

We’d like to offer a huge thank you to our sponsors, who’ve made the festival possible: thank you!
