Melcombe Villa Guest House was built in Victorian times and is adjoined with Turton Villa, which once belonged to John Turner, the physician to King George III when he spent holidays here in the late 17th century. Weymouth's popularity as a seaside resort is attributed to King George III who came to bathe in the sea as a health cure for his nervous disorder. The beach is superb and consists of a sandy bay, changing to shingle by the jubilee clock.

Weymouth has an historic harbour and boasts 95 miles of stunning Jurassic coastline; Englands first natural World Heritage site.
