Unfamiliar with the area, the statue is a great landmark for the bus terminals and busier areas of the town. I drove around the statue twice hunting for the free parking. It is an eye catching well preserved statue.

This well maintained statue has certainly split fellow reviewers! To me, it provides a useful landmark to everyone, whilst also acting as a trigger to those with any interest in local history to research the historical connection of George III to the town.

There is nothing to say, it is a local monument on the promenade and also a turning point for cars and buses.

Statue of King George III which commemorates his love of taking to the waters in Weymouth. It was cleaned up a lot just prior to the 2012 Olympics when the sailing took place here, and it still looks good on it.
