The historic town of Lyme Regis is situated on the Jurassic Coast on the rugged Dorset coastline. With several local beaches to choose from, there is plenty to keep beach lovers happy here. From fossil hunting and rock pooling to swimming and sandcastle building, you can be on the beach from dusk to dawn. When you have finished with the sand between your toes head into town for a stroll around the famous Cobb harbour followed by an evening meal watching the sun set over the Bay.
There is more to Lyme Regis than lazy days on the beach. The town is steeped in history and was home to the famous palaeontologist and fossil collector, Mary Anning. You can find out more about the town’s fascinating history at the Lyme Regis Museum or Dinosaurland Fossil Museum. Other attractions include the Marine Aquarium, fishing trips, Lyme Bay RIB rides or a game of crazy golf.
Arguably the best way to admire the stunning setting of Lyme Regis is to pack a picnic and set off on two feet. From a gentle stroll around the beautiful Langmoor Gardens to tackling a section of the South West Coast Path, there are plenty of walks to explore. A little further afield is the lively market town of Bridport or water sports fans can enjoy a day trip to the coastal town of Weymouth.
