About Lyme Regis

Fossils are the big draw of this historic seaside port - the beaches here are awash with geological finds! Search through the rocks on scenic Monmouth Beach for some of the best relics, including ancient ammonites. Or to see the finest specimens visit the local Dinosaurland Fossil Museum or Lyme Regis Philpot Museum.

Of course, if you’d prefer the classic beachside pleasures of sandcastle building, paddling and deckchair lounging you can do that too at one of Lyme Regis’ choice of small beaches.

A bustling port since medieval times, Lyme Regis has lots of quirky historic features, like colourful, narrow lanes lined with galleries and shops, and an ancient watermill that still grounds flour today.

The Cobb is the town’s most iconic landmark having featured in several films, including The French Lieutenant’s Woman with Meryl Streep. Take a romantic stroll along the curved harbour wall at sunset for glorious views.
