Littlemoor is a suburb of Weymouth in Dorset, England and is located to the north of the town centre.

During World War I, the Littlemoor area was used as an Australian army camp. For this reason many of the roads in the area today are named after towns and cities in Australia.

Littlemoor has a skatepark and youth centre. Littlemoor also has a small shopping centre, which comprises a small supermarket, fish and chip shop, hairdressers, hardware store, greengrocers, Chinese takeaway, charity shop, newsagents, and also a Doctors surgery, dental practice and pharmacy. (The shopping centre has parking for about 200 cars.)

Opposite the shopping centre there is a small Library; next to which is a small green, and the local Church of England church - St. Francis of Assisi.

Littlemoor is partially surrounded by fields which are very popular with local residents and dog walkers. It has a woodland area (which has been named Teddy Bear woods, referencing to the famous nursery rhyme) managed by Dorset Wildlife Trust, part of their Lorton Meadows nature reserve.

Littlemoor has its own social networking site, Littlemoor Live!
