Lyme Regis lies at the meeting point of West Dorset & East Devon. It’s a small town which has carefully protected its geography and architecture to become a desirable, beautiful seaside town with a lively arts scene and prolific food culture.

Famous for its Cobb & harbour (immortalised in The French Lieutenants Woman), Lyme Regis is at the heart of The Jurassic coast with 3 beaches and boasting the only sand in its 20 mile stretch. An ammonite is the towns badge and all things fossil have been closely associated with the town for almost 200 years.

The town has a bustling high street with galleries, boutiques & cafes aplenty; local food is exceptional at the Hix Oyster & Fish House, casually delicious at Town Mill Bakery and vegetarian café Tierra Kitchen. Enjoy a Devon cream tea at the stunning Alexandra Hotel overlooking Lyme Bay. For more simple food pleasures try scallops and chips from the Fishermans Wife takeaway on the seafront or the authentic wood fired pizzas from Poco Pizza. There are regular festivals and arts events including Dorset Art week, Lyme Regis Fossil festival, Lifeboat week, Dorset Food week, Lyme Regis Art festival.
