Seaside Town, Lyme Regis, West Dorset

Scroll down to content

Lyme Regis, the ‘Pearl of Dorset’  This post is a collection of three years worth of visits, at different times of the year.  It’s a bit late now to do separate posts of each year and it doesn’t really change much over the years, which is one of the attractions of visiting.

Situated at the heart of the world famous Jurassic Coast, Lyme Regis is an historic seaside resort and fishing port.  Lyme’s existence depended upon the Cobb, a small artificial harbour dating from the time of Edward I.  Lyme is exposed to south-westerly gales, and the Cobb acts as both a harbour and a breakwater.  This is really a postcard to tempt you to visit, if you haven’t already discovered this amazing little seaside town.
