Located in Weymouth, 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 festival, from Sci-Fi Adventures to Dinosaurs, see breathtaking sand sculptures based on films and TV, plus, jaw-dropping dinosaur sand sculptures celebrating our dramatic Jurassic Coast. 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.

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


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


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.


Harry Potter

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!

Meet T REX!


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!



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!



Planning on visiting us soon? Here's what you might need to know.
