    Lyme Regis Warnings and Dangers

    If you plan to walk from Lyme to Charmouth, or the other way, check the tide times first. You can easily get cut off by Church Cliffs (just east of Lyme) and there is no escape route as the cliffs are almost sheer. People have died there in the past, so take care. Watch the mudflows from the landslip too ... they can be very deep and will suck you...

    Lyme Regis Warnings and Dangers

    You may want to explore the landslip to the east of Lyme, but take great care. The earth is still moving, and mudflows can trap you and suck you down. Take care even in summer, weather, as the area rarely dries out fully. Remember that all the cliffs along Lyme Bay are unstable, and keep well away from them if the weather has been wet.

  • Check a car parking

    Confirmation is necessary whether there is a parking lot in the accommodations when you stay at the town of the circle by trip to drive. A certain B&B has little independent parking space. Please stop the car in the public parking lot.

  • Sardines

    Unless you like not having much personal space avoid Weymouth & other popular beaches in the summer school holidays, ( mid July - first week of September ) This was the beach on a cloudy over cast day!
