There has been a town of Weymouth since the Middle Ages. What changed everything was sea bathing. Pevnser describes Weymouth as the ideal seaside resort par excellence. Ralph Allen of Bath first introduced sea bathing in 1763. However in 1780 the King’s brother, the, Duke of Gloucester came here and the King George III himself came down in 1789 and then visited Weymouth regularly until 1805. To meet the needs of the Court and the growing number of visitors, a number of fine new terraces were built facing the sea as well as a new church, St. Mary, to meet the spiritual needs of the visitors. In the small streets behind the front, there are a large number of attractive Georgian houses as well as the very classical Guildhall.
We shall meet at Weymouth railway station at 10.30 am. This will be an all-day outing finishing at about 4 pm. The Tour will be led by John Moses.
