Weymouth In Old Postcards and Photographs
Gloucester Hotel circa 1930
The Gloucester Hotel around the 1930s. The building dates from about 1783 and was known as Gloucester Lodge and was home to George 3rd and his family when ‘taking the waters’ in Weymouth. The King would cross the track to the sands and water with his court and the musicians would play the National Anthem as the King emerged from The Royal Saloon into the water.  A glass conservatory was added as shown below. There was also a serious fire which is covered in more detail if you follow this link
