Thank you all for an amazing season.
We hope to see you all again soon for 2024 season!
Just a reminder, there are no toilet facilities on site, but you are welcome to use public toilets in the car park 2 minutes away.
A fun, educational, all-weather family attraction, SandWorld showcases awe-inspiring work by some of the world’s leading sand sculptors – and is the UK's only Sand Sculpture Festival. Opened in 2011 by Weymouth “Sandman” Mark Anderson, and David Hicks, an aspiring sand sculptor and good friend of Mark.
During this year’s season, see amazing sand sculptures based on films and TV including Alien vs Predator, Avatar, Dr Who, Guardians of the Galaxy, Mandalorian, Star Wars & more. New displays will be added throughout the season, with many guests being able to watch in wonder as sculptors create their works of art. The sculptures are so beautifully detailed, it is hard to believe that they are just sand and water.
You are never too young or too old to create your own mini masterpiece. With daily workshops, plus, plenty of tools and water available, you can enjoy hands-on family fun whilst turning your ideas into 3D art. Take photos and impress your friends and family with your new skills.

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!
Classic big screen films made out of sand! Your favourite sculpture of 2019 season.
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.
There was something very magical about our Harry Potter exhibit; we loved encapsulating the sorcery of Hogwarts with sand!
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!
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!
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!
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.
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!
One of the VERY best value things to do in Weymouth, the staff were kind, caring and very helpful. Our children (4,11 and 16) ALL loved this, as did we all. The exhibition of sand sculptures are amazing, the cafe is informal and the activities are really good fun. Giving our children the chance to actually try sand sculpture for themselves (with help) was great, they enjoyed this immensely and got lots from our trip to this inexpensive and truly gratifying attraction; If you do nothing else in Weymouth, try this, you'll love it and if you have children (of ANY age), they'll love it too.
This is very artistic and must take hours to achieve. We looked in oar at the wonderful scenes and sights carved out of sand. The detail is absolutely amazing and certainly worth a look.
The Sand Sculptures are a must to see as are so cleverly done,for Young and old to enjoy.The entrance fee is a good price too and being as its on the Sea Front you have many things to do around the area.
