    Walk Broad Street

    by trvlrtom Written Jul 18, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Broad Street is the primary street in Lyme Regis, and is lined with places to eat and shop. It goes up the hill from the center by the car parks. When you reach the top you can veer left on Pound Street a short way, then left again on Cobb Road, which leads you quickly down to Cobb Square. This is the point that the Cobb stretches out to the sea and where the sandy beach stretches east toward the center of town again. It's a pretty easy little walk.

    The Guildhall

    by trvlrtom Written Jul 18, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Guildhall has been here since the 1500s. The area near the entrance, called Cockmoile Square, was the site of the town stocks. The last man to be put in the stocks was Tommy Pearce, who was sentenced in 1863 for drunkenness.

    Get the free town map

    by trvlrtom Written Jul 18, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Lyme Regis is small enough that you don't have to worry about getting lost without a map. But the free map given at the tourist office is attractive, helpful and interesting. It's made in an old fashioned style and shows every shop and business in town, with addresses and phone numbers on the reverse side. If there is anything you are looking to find in Lyme Regis, it will be easy to locate on the map.

    The tourist info office also has a lot of free information, as well as books and other items usually found in these offices. Helpful here is the wealth of info on the Jurassic Coast.

    Walk the Lyme Regis Undercliffs

    by trvlrtom Written Jul 18, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Approaching Beer.

    Years of extensive landslides have created a beautiful and unique natural site, conserved now in the Undercliffs National Nature Reserve. A series of cliffs between Lyme Regis and Seaton to the west are connected by the South West Coast Path National Trail (a long, 630 mile trail system), which continues further in both directions. But this particular stretch of coast is exceptional. The undercliff is where land has broken free from an inland cliff and the sea cliff, exposing a geological time line of millions of years. The rocks and dense natural foliage create a brilliant environment.

    The tourist information offices at Seaton and Lyme Regis have helpful brochures with a map of the walkway.

    See the Town Mill

    Town Mill

    The old Town Mill in Lyme Regis was in operation for several centuries until being closed in 1926. Thankfully it has been restored and redeveloped as a working waterwheel driven mill and small shop complex. They make stone-ground flour and sell artisan goods, crafts etc, along with having a small bistro. A small gallery showcases paintings and other art from regional artists. The stone buildings themselves are interesting to see even if you are not keen on shopping.

    Walk or "Promenade"

    by Kettleman Updated May 29, 2008
    Lyme Regis from Gardens
    2 more images

    Parking seemed somewgat at a premium and so we ended up at the top of the hill by the entrance to the gardens.

    This does give you a chance to walk down the road and look in the various shiops and then a the bottom go back along the sea front and then back up through the gardens.

    Scuba Dive

    by adelinemmc Written Aug 31, 2006
    Buddy check before the dive

    Many wrecks lie at the bottom of Lyme Bay and you can dive them from Lyme or Westbay.

    This is English waters so a dry suit is a must unless you wait until later in the season (August September) when a semi-dry 7mm will do if you're not to sensitive to cold.

    Arcade

    It is not my cup of tea but, every English sea side sports an amusement arcade so why should Lyme be any different... and at least they pugged it slightly away from the romantic, olde town drag! ;-)
