Weymouth is a popular seaside resort on the Dorset coast - in Summer. In Winter it's pretty quiet and empty! Still, I was passing through and visiting my dad rather than coming to sit on the beach, so I found plenty of interesting things to look at and photograph. I've been there once more since, in Summer, and saw a totally different place and will have some quite different photographs to show once I eventually catch up on my backlog!
Weymouth has a nice long beach in a sheltered bay. Not much for surfing, but popular for english tourists to spend the day relaxing, playing games, watching punch & judy shows... none of which happen in November of course. The permanent population is a little over 50,000, but I'm sure this about triples in summer. The entire long esplanade along the beach is crowded with hotels and guest houses, and there are many many pubs and restaurants all over town.
Weymouth is actually one of the first modern tourist destinations, after King George's brother built a grand residence there, and then the King visited himself over summer fourteen times. His personal wooden bathing box has been preserved and on display on the esplanade.
One thing I just learnt by researching my facts was that the port of Melcombe Regis (half of the area which later turned into Weymouth) was one of the first ports of entry of the Black Death into England in 1348. They didn't mention that at any of the tourist things I saw! It came possibly on a ship carrying spices, or by soldiers returning from the 100 years war.
Weymouth was the embarkation points for over 500,000 Allied soldiers leaving for D-Day landings at Normandy, and there are some good photos of lines and lines of soldiers marching down the esplanade towards the harbour. So there might not have been much exciting going on in Weymouth in the middle of winter, but it's quite an interesting place with lots of history.
