We have been awarded the official UK mark to show that we follow Government and industry COVID-19 guidelines and have a process in place to maintain cleanliness and aid social distancing.

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.

If you haven't visited us before, SandWorld is a unique gallery with a massive difference, as you get to have a go yourself, with tools and helpful staff at hand -
A MUST VISIT FOR ALL AGES !

OUR FAVOURITES

 

At Sandworld we're always changing; here's some of our past favourites.

Dragons!

Game of Thrones

This is one of your favourites! Voted #1 in 2018 and #3 in 2019! Made by Mark and Angelika, this is her very first big project!

In a Galaxy far far away...

Star Wars

Classic big screen films made out of sand! Your favourite sculpture of 2019 season.

Our Heroes

Avengers

Everybody knows who they are! Created by Lee in 2018 and then again in 2019 by Karen, the Avengers sculptures are one of yours and ours favourites.

SAND MAGIC!

Harry Potter

There was something very magical about our Harry Potter exhibit; we loved encapsulating the sorcery of Hogwarts with sand!

SAFARI TIME

WORLD ANIMALS

For many of us, going on safari would be a dream come true, but at Sand World we've already had some of the world's largest animals come and visit!

Meet T REX!

JURASSIC

Bringing the T Rex back has to have been one of our favourite projects over the past. You’ll find more photos in our gallery section!

VRRRRM

CHITTY BANG BANG

The film is now 49 years old but the car has made an appearance at Sand World in recent years. It might be a bit slower in sand though!

WORLD ANIMALS

ANCIENT GREECE

We were incredibly proud and pleased with the level of detail on these serpents and lions from a well known Greek myth - a real crowd pleaser.

CROWD PLEASER

KIDS FAVOURITES

We don’t see many children that aren’t huge fans of these characters, which is why we had to create this great sculpture for visitors to enjoy!
