    Lyme Regis Transportation

    Lyme used to have a railway station but that was axed in the 1960's following the Beeching cuts. The nearest railway station is at Axminster, on the mainline between London Waterloo and Exeter. From there the First bus, service #31, runs hourly between Axminster and Weymouth with Lyme Regis being about 20 minutes away. As the bus crests the hill...

    Lyme Regis Transportation

    If you arrive in Lyme with your car you will immediately realise 2 things: 1) the lack of parking availability if you are not the early bird that catches the early worm ... or in the case one of the few car park spaces! 2) The car parks charge ALL the time... day, night, weekday, weekend day... and whilst this WILL rattle through ALL your cash,...

  • Condor Ferries

    It is easy to visit the Channel Islands & St Malo in France from Dorset. The ferries leave from Poole and Weymouth, it only takes 2 hours to get to Guernsey 3.5 hours to get to Jersey & an hour longer for St Malo. Presently Condor Ferries have a day return to Jersey & Guernsey for under £20.00. I have not yet done this, but plan to on my next visit...

  • Around Jurassic Coast

    The Coast- Linx53 bus is convenient if you make a round trip of here.This bus runs between Bournemouth and Exeter,And some bus to the shore part runs from the main town,#150 Bournmouth~Swanage#x25/#130 Wool~ West Lulworth#x10 Dorchester~Weymouth~Isle of Partland

  • The Dorset Belle

    The Dorset Belle is the ideal way to see the Jurassic coast on a cruise; it’s also a fantastic way of sailing to Swanage, Poole The Isle of Wight or Studland without struggling with your bike onto a train. Most of the boats will take bikes free of charge, there’s usually plenty of space to sit and somewhere to tie your bike. The only drawback is...

  • Cycling the seafront Hegisbury to Poole

    I have just completed a charity cycle ride from Hengisbury Head to Poole, & the Chain Ferry to Studland & onto Swanage itself. It takes 30 mins to cycle from Hengisbury to Bournemouth, & another from there to Poole through Sandbanks.You can stop off @ Bournemouth pier & hop on a the Dorset Bella either to Poole, or Swanage.Cycling is restricted, so...

  • Ferrys

    We caught the Red Funnel car ferry from Southampton to Cowes on the Isle of Wight, its a 55 minute journey crusing along the Solent. The ship is ok...... not up to the standards of Brittany Ferries, but then you are only on it for a short time.Returns start from £27.00 for a day return to £44.00 for a 5 day return. There is also a faster passenger...
