Lovely seaside walk. Unfortunately the weather was not very good when we visited. Lyme Regis is a quaint little seaside town with penty of interesting places.

The whole beach is impressive but, for the best fossils, it is worth the walk away from the Cobb until you reach the ammonite pavement. Go at low tide and you’ll get easier walks on the sand, although for fossils head closer to the exposed...More

Beside the Cobb but would suggest using the coast path to the far end as this seems to be better for fossils and smaller stones so easier to walk on. Car park very busy and no pedestrians. Toilets are not going to win a lol...More

Nice place Monmouth beach, I found a few fossils in the sedimentary rocks, I didn't stay long the tide was coming in and it was raining a little, it's hard to walk on if you have difficulty in walking

Make sure you set aside a few hours, preferably at low tide. We found a couple of fossils and enjoyed the experience on a sunny autumn day. Parking is easy a train a reasonable cost and you within walking distance of the town. Recommended.

A place for rock hounds and fossil collectors. It has, in the main lost its fossil hunting attractions unless you are a real enthusiast and want to spend hours hunting

We found fossils while picking pebbles on this beach. This very relaxing and calming hobby is something we can recommend any person. And if you are lucky, you can also find a fossil!

We popped over to Lyme Regis in search of fossils, we were a bit disappointed that there weren't that many. Probably down to the fact that we went at high tide so there weren't as many on show, a lot of people have beaten us...More

I went mid-September 2017. The sand was soft and lovely. I’ve owned condos on the Atlantic in Florida. The stones, pebbles and rocks are often from a storm. Just my experience.
