Weymouth is an ancient town, with a town charter dating back to the thirteenth century. Its position on the south coast made it a useful place from which to launch ships throughout its history, particularly in support of the WW2 D-Day landings.  It was to Weymouth that the people of Alderney came to escape the German invasion of the Channel Islands.

The road to Weymouth passes through the Golden Triangle, an area of outstanding natural beauty, following the jurassic coast and shadowing the South West Coastal Path running along the coastline.

This is the end of Stevens' internal journey as well as the final destination of his motoring trip. After his stay in Weymouth he will return to Darlington Hall and move on to the next stage: the remains of the day, and the quiet evening of his life.
