2 High Street, Wyke Regis, Weymouth, Dorset

  • It was a popular inn name at one time. It honoured Francis Albert (1819-1861) second son of Ernest 1st Duke of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, the husband of Queen Victoria. The parish church of All Saints, nearby, was the mother church of Weymouth. After the East Indiaman, Abergavenny, sank in Weymouth Bay in 1805, gravediggers buried many of the drowned crew in that graveyard. One of those who died was Captain John Wordsworth, brother of the poet, William Wordsworth. People used The Albert Inn as a mortuary for this incident. Previously in 1795, there were three troop transporters sank and hundreds of bodies were washed ashore. The inn exhibits ghostly manifestations. These include both a sailor and a soldier in early 19th century uniforms from the second of these disasters, in 1805.
