Lyme Regis


Lovely Lyme Regis

Lyme Regis, sometimes referred to as the jewel in West Dorset's crown, has an abundance of things to do including walking, outdoor sports, and museums or just enjoy browsing around the lovely gift shops leading down to the seafront or visit the world famous Cobb.

Probably the main attraction of this pretty little seaside town are the two contrasting beaches. A beautiful sandy stretch provides the perfect setting for some serious sand castle building or head over to the more pebbly Monmouth beach for the hunting of ancient fossils.  The restaurants and seafront cafe's are also pretty good too!
