We walked along this rocky beach over 3 days. There were hundreds of big ammonite fossils to see and interesting scenery changes from smallish rocks to areas of huge flatter rock embedded with fossils. Really spectacular place to see the sun set and the rocky ground and eroding cliffs give it an otherworldly, adventurous feel.

Very good beach to walk along and try to find or look for some fossils. Beware and try not to go to close around the cliff.

Spent a lovely if chilly day last weekend fossil hunting along Lyme Regis coast. We were amazed at the sheer amount of fossils to be found. Well worth a visit, kids big n small will love it!

Loved the beach and fossil hunting. The new Sea defence wall and walk is fantastic. Especially for buggies and prams.

My husband and I are visiting our family after several years overseas. We read about the Jurassic coast and had to come visit. We arrived at low tide, which you can google or ask at the little shop near the Cobb parking lot. We walked a short way down the beach but the tide was slowly coming in so we... More

My favorite activity done in Lyme Regis so far, very impressed by the amount of fossils you can see captured in the rocks. To be done at low tide to go as far as possible and see more.

While on a short break I visited this beach in Lyme Regis, locals advised this beach was worth a visit and was dog friendly, the beach is all pebble and quite steep to the water edge, clean and interesting, very little catering facilities at the beach, but a short five minute walk and you are among the local cafe's and...

This was an amazing walk for me - someone who has been interested in fossils since a young age and to finally see them, strewn across numerous rocks in front of me at every turn, was fantastic! Some people have described it as a 'scramble' to get to it and that could be true depending on your age and your... More

We walked along the beach to the ammonite pavements and that was pretty spectacular. We even found a few bits of fossils to take home with us. The only thing is that you must be careful on the rocks as some are really slippery and some of the sand is like quicksand.

Have been here lots of times over the years with my small children but this was my first child free visit. £1 per hour to park in the car parks which there are plenty of but they do fill quickly. Lots of nik knack shops to mooch in and plenty of bars and eateries. There are clean public toilets next... More
