We enjoyed the walk and went along the beach and climbed the steps to the Charmouth Road. Lyme Regis has very good coastal walk and the River walk to Uplyme is easy to walk. A stop at the black dog for good coffee and cake...More

Went to Lyme Regis from Portland bill. Lovely walk along the prom and hot chocolate in a cafe. Good beach for families. What a proper seaside should be.

We visited in mid-September and were walking from Seaton to Lyme Regis along the South Coast Way. The path takes you through the very interesting terrain of the Axmouth to Lyme Regis Undercliff area, this is mostly forested with many ups and downs and twists...More

Lyme Regis attracts a great many visitors; as a result parking is tight and not cheap, and heavily patrolled to catch defaulters. On the day we arrived, we were lucky to be able to find a place to park in one of the strait and...More

We parked in The Cobb carpark but the spaces are quite narrow. There is a park and ride up the hill (on the way into Lyme Regis) or a good sized car park a bit further down. All car parks reasonable in price. There are...More

It would be if they enjoy walking. Path quite steep going up with scenic stream. Nice views on top here and their. The path as you enter the wooded area of undercliff can be tricky with uneven tree stumps.
