Conserving our heritage, increasing access and engaging the public

History for everyone

We engage residents and visitors with our history, while helping conserve features of historic interest, including running to popular heritage visitor attractions.

Weymouth Civic Society runs two museums in Weymouth, Nothe Fort and Tudor House.

Nothe Fort is a Victorian coastal fort that was saved from dereliction by WCS volunteers and opened to the public in 1980. It is now Weymouth’s leading heritage attraction.

Tudor House had its  future secured when local architect, Wamsley Lewis, purchased the property after World War II, restoring it with the aid of local craftsmen. He left it in his will to Weymouth Civic Society, which he had himself established in 1944. Furnished as a 17th Century Merchant’s house, our volunteers welcome visitors during the summer season.

More information can be found about our two museums on their own websites: Nothe Fort and [Tudor House]
