The history of the place dates back to the twelfth century and denotes an important role in the expansion of the Black Death, the colonization of America, the Georgian era and the Second World War.
Although fishing and commerce have been losing their preponderance as sources of employment since their time of splendor in past centuries, tourism maintains its strong presence since the eighteenth century. The city continues to be a popular tourist destination and today the local economy depends on the port and beaches in Weymouth Bay. It is also an access point to the Jurassic Coast, located on the Dorset and East Devon coastline and declared a World Heritage Site due to its particular geology and geographical features. The port of Weymouth is the starting point of ferries that cross the canal and mooring of boats and private yachts.
