Lyme Regis

Our campsite is very close to Lyme Regis, just over the other side of Lyme Bay (about 3 miles). The Charmouth to Lyme Regis route makes for a very enjoyable walk if you have the time, but if you don’t feel up to it there is a regular bus service from our park entrance!

Lyme Regis is one of the highlights of the Jurassic Coast, a perfect example of a traditional Dorset fishing town with its winding streets and picturesque old buildings. The town’s harbour wall (‘The Cobb’), is world famous, and has been used as a backdrop in several movies, including the Oscar-winning 1981 adaptation of The French Lieutenant’s Woman, starring Meryl Streep.

While it celebrates its history, Lyme Regis is also looking forward to the future. The town is home to renowned cafes and restaurants like the Hix Oyster and Fish House, run by celebrity chef Mark Hix, and the annual Fossil Festival has become a hugely popular event, drawing visitors to Lyme from all around the world every year.

When you arrive in Lyme Regis, you instantly know you’re in the heart of the Jurassic Coastline – fossil shops abound and even the street lights are shaped like ammonites! Many fossil hunting enthusiasts come to the town to follow in the footsteps of Mary Anning, who lived in Lyme Regis in the 19th century and gained fame as the founder of the discipline of palaeontology.
