Every inch the modern tourist resort, with a wide and shallow sandy beach that in the summer is home to donkey rides, Punch and Judy, sand sculpture and world class local ice cream, Weymouth is in many ways the first great English seaside resort.

Its success owes much to the patronage of King George III who made Weymouth his summer residence in the 1780s and was even known to venture into the sea – almost unheard of in polite society – in a bathing machine. The famous white horse carved into the hill at Osmington dates from 1808 and is said to depict George leaving the town for the last time.

Weymouth has a long history as a port and since 1571 has incorporated neighbouring Melcombe Regis, thought to be the point at which the Black Death came into England in June 1348. In the mid-17th century Weymouth saw heavy fighting during the Civil War and was a major point of departure for settlers bound for the New World.

Before becoming MP for Weymouth in 1702, the architect Sir Christopher Wren controlled the quarries at Portland so in the wake of the Great Fire of London it was an obvious choice to have his showpiece St Paul’s Cathedral built of Portland Stone. By coincidence, Sir James Thornbill, the artist who decorated the inside of St Paul’s was born in the White Hart pub in Melcombe Regis in 1675.

The area more than did its bit during the two world wars of the 20th century, hosting some 120,000 convalescing ANZAC troops during World War One and seeing the embarkation of more than half a million soldiers for the invasion of France in 1944, while the famous bouncing bombs of the Dambusters were tested in the Fleet lagoon at Chesil Beach.

When Portland’s naval base and air station closed at the end of the 1990s it ended more than 500 years of association with the Royal Navy. A geologically important limestone tied island connected to the mainland by the remarkable shingle of Chesil Beach, it is the home of British Sailing with the Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy hosting the sailing 2012 Olympic sailing regattas.
