Weymouth first became a resort when King George III began taking his family holidays here in 1789 and ever since it has proved popular with tourists. His statue still stands on the promenade. The beach and esplanade, historic harbour, marina and nature reserve encircle the rejuvenated town centre combing both the traditional and modern architecture to create a very special place to visit.
The Russell Hotel
The Russell Hotel is situated on the glorious seafront Esplanade of Weymouth, and has a deserved reputation for a warm welcome and great hospitality. With easy access to the surrounding countryside, the popular town centre just a short walk away, and a selection of attractions for all tastes, you'll soon see why guests return year after year. It adjoins sister property the Hotel Prince Regent, and you are free to enjoy the facilities in both hotels - dining in your own hotel for breakfast and dinner. Inside there is a relaxing bar and lounge area with entertainment from top local performers every evening. Alternatively, you could just as easily wander across to enjoy the entertainment in the Hotel Prince Regent's wonderfully restored ballroom - the choice is yours.

Our excursion takes us to Poole, a busy tourist resort known for its large harbour and award winning blue flag beaches. The town centre is situated in the heart of the resort and stretches from the waters edge at Poole Quay right up to the Dolphin Shopping Centre which has over 100 stores. Much of Poole’s rich history still survives in Old Town with an exciting mix of smugglers passageways and elegant merchants houses dated back to the 17th and 18th centuries. If you fancy something to eat then why not sample some excellent local cuisine at one of the cafes, pubs or restaurants.
