A very warm welcome to The Leam!

3-star-guest-accommodationSet amid the splendour of Weymouth’s wonderful Esplanade, described as ‘one of the finest marine promenades in the kingdom,’ (Bradshaw’s Guide) The Leam was built in 1780, originally as a pair of gentlemen’s residences. Sea-bathing became very fashionable in the 1770s after the Duke of Gloucester introduced his brother, King George III, to Weymouth, ‘this delightful watering-place’ – and where the King went, the rest of society followed. Today, visitors still flock to Britain’s first seaside resort to walk barefoot across miles of soft golden sands and bathe in the restoring waters of Weymouth Bay – but there is so much else to do too: Weymouth is famous for seafood and sailing, Carnival and kites, rambling and heritage railways, history, beauty and birds. With panoramic views out over the sea and towards the cliffs that still protect the Bay, The Leam has been welcoming guests to Weymouth since 1926. We are looking forward to welcoming you too!
