You really must visit this, bring a packed lunch or use one of the many eatery’s around, i marvelled at this for around 30 seconds could have been less, well the time it took to walk past infact. Highly recommended if visiting Dorset.

This is a large statue of the mad king george 3rd. It is in middle of the road on an island. It is beautiful to see and have a sea bath as well. It is the centre point for weymouth.
