History and the Ocean

Lyme Regis is a pleasant place to visit for its history and beautiful seaside setting. It's known as the setting for the book and subsequent movie, "The French Lieutenant's Woman", and if you are familiar with this, the area will seem a little recognizable. The cobb, the imposing grey stretch of stone leading out to the sea, hasn't changed over the decades. Much of the town streets have retained some character, although they now cater to the tourist trade. There are plenty of opportunities to eat, drink and buy postcards in Lyme Regis.

Nearby towns of Seaton and Beer.

If you are ambitious, you can walk west along the coastal uplands to Seaton, and then on to Beer. The first stretch is a good three hours, and the latter another half hour. The drive is just a few minutes. Either way, I strongly suggest a visit. Beer is especially nice, with some decent pubs, restaurants and shops, but mostly for the beautiful seaside setting.
