Now a suburb of Weymouth to the north of the town centre, Upwey was once a separate village known as the source of the River Wey, which meanders through the area. Marking the source is Upwey Wishing Well, which has remained a much-loved feature and popular tourist attraction since the Victorian era.
These days, Upwey Wishing Well is accompanied by ornamental water gardens and a well-regarded tea room; the perfect place at which to enjoy a cream tea or Sunday lunch after a walk through the beautiful village itself. Throughout Upwey, centuries-old cottages sit alongside grand residences, including Upwey Manor, and the area is also home to an 18th Century water mill and the 13th Century church of St Laurence.
Surrounded on three sides by countryside, Upwey retains its village feel despite being just four miles from the myriad amenities of central Weymouth and just over four miles from the county town of Dorchester, connected to both by rail as well as road.
