Upwey is a very picturesque village. With the beautiful countryside surrounding the village, you could easily forget that Weymouth is so close. The Upwey Wishing Well has been a tourist attraction from Victorian times. It remains so to this day with a tea room serving home-made cakes and home-cooked food. Surrounded by ornamental gardens and the river, and of course, the well itself.
Upwey has 2 pubs in the village The Old Ship Inn and The Royal Standard, who brew their own ales. Island Garden Nurseries is a must for keen gardeners, full of plants and friendly advice. Take a seat on the bench by the stream and breathe in the fresh country air.
