This NEW 90-minute walking tour takes you back in time to the 14th Century. The first visit to the British Isles of a pestilence that changes life around the world!

In June 1348, the Bubonic Plague was reported in the coastal town of Melcombe Regis – not that it was given a name 800 years ago!

It was thought to be a punishment on the people of England from above. The story will be told of how it spread and what happened to the infected.

Weymouth is also famous for becoming a place where Pilgrims departed for foreign lands, or sought miracle cures, and was a place where Royalty visited too!
