After a highly successful season in 2015 with our  “Best of British” theme Sandworld returns in 2016 with a new theme “A Life on Earth” celebrating the life and work of Sir David Attenborough.

With new giant sand sculptures of creatures from all Continents and Oceans from Micro Monsters to Gorillas & Lions and the Giants of The Jurassic Coast Sandworld Weymouth Sand Sculpting Festival 2016 promises to be the most spectacular yet!

For updates on our plans for 2016 please visit our Facebook page at www.fb.com/sandworld.

Sandworld is Weymouth’s first sand sculpture festival, and one of only a handful ever held in the UK. Opened in 2011 by Weymouth “Sandman” Mark Anderson, and David Hicks, an aspiring sand sculptor and good friend of Mark.

Our aim is to bring the best sand artists from around the world to your doorstep, so that you can see what we have seen on our travels, and share the universal joy that is sand sculpting!

We look forward to seeing you soon!



    Play Wall-E

    Children will have lots of fun when they visit seeing how many  Wall-E’s they can find hiding in the displays? Tell us when you return to the shop and they could win a sweet treat.

    Relax In Our Wildflower Café

    Pop in and recharge your energy with lots of hot and cold drinks, ice-creams and snacks to choose from.
