I have visited Lyme Regis in sunshine and in storms but it always, always retains its exquisite charms. I think, testament to this, is the fact that my daughter, now 18 still clamours to visit the town whenever we are in the vicinity for a holiday. I have the first photo of her there when she was just two months old. The perspective I will give is that of a day visitor. Getting there ----------------- Lyme Regis is in Dorset, near the towns of Axminster and Bridport. It consists of a town which dips steeply to the sea with a road going through this up and down experience. I usually travel by car from the direction of Bridport and take the ...

~~~Introduction:~~~ Lyme Regis is a beautiful, Dorset coastal town that lies on the South coast of England, between Axmouth, on the west and Charmouth, on the East. When I was a child, I refused to acknowledge that it 'belonged' to Dorset. Oh no! It was definitely a Devonshire town!! - I was Devonshire and lived a mere six miles away at Axminster - where the carpets grow. - erm, I mean are made, and when old enough, I would either catch Puffing Billy, our local steam engine which ran on a single line direct from Axminster to Lyme ( as we call it); Or if my pocket money had been spent on sweets, I would have to cycle there. Anyone who is ... Read the complete review

Lyme Regis - What can I say?? My Fiance and I are big fans of this beautiful place, we visit 3-4 times per year and are moving there next year after our wedding. It has something for everyone, beautiful beaches, wonderful eateries (I will come to those in a minute!), lovely walks and history galore. Our favourite walk is along the Monmouth under cliffs - fab views and our number one dog walking spot! Our favourite pubs in Lyme Regis are: The Cobb Arms - Lovely, traditional food at a good price. Right by the sea, it offers wonderful views and a perfect place to spend your evening. Prices are £8-£11 for a main course. The Harbour ... Read the complete review

The beaches are clean, the locals are friendly, the food is excellent, but Lyme Regis holds a much more powerful attraction than the run of the mill beach resort. This particular stretch of coastline is an incredible area for paleontological studies. (Study of extinct life). The cliffs hold secrets from billions of years ago, allowing scientists to build a good picture of life here hundreds of millions of years ago. It all started in around the 1700's when local girl in her early 20's, Mary Anning was breaking open rocks from the cliffs for evidence of fossil trilobites and ammonites, which are plentiful, and came across the complete skeleton of an ...

I've just seen a report on the channel four news about the landslides in Lyme Regis. It brought back memories of the two times I've visited there. The first time was about 10 years ago and we stayed in a small hotel set back from the front, up (and I mean up!) one of the small streets leading away from the harbour. Most recently (i.e. last August), we stayed in the Bay Hotel which, as the name suggests, is right on the front overlooking the promonade and beach. Part of the reason I booked it was a spectacular photograph they have (available on web sites and their own postcards) of a wave breaking on the sea wall and reaching nearly to the roof ...
