What travelers are saying
- Everything happens around the Cobb. Harbour, Beaches, restaurants. List the aquarium or take a boat ride.Written July 10, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- After many years of staying in Lyme Regiswe finally got around to visiting. It was well worth the wait. Not bad price to get in, there is lots to look at on to floors. Lot of draws to open and see what is inside. The museum covers all the history of Lyme.
Well worth a visit, can get busy.Written August 12, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Fascinating collection of fossils, bones, taxidermy etc covering a wide range of subjects. Lots of literature, probably more suited to older visitors. I think it's fair to say that the facility could do with some modernization/renovation but it is still worth checking out if you need a break from the beach. Well worth a look if you're into that sort of thing.Written August 15, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Stopped in whilst visiting the beach. It isn't the biggest aquarium and visit will only take 45-60mins, but I'd recommend getting some mullet food and feeding them whilst is a great experience. Fish are 15yrs old and very tame, they also get out live star fish for you to hold. Its a quick activity to get out the sun but well worth checking out.Written August 15, 2022
- Wear good shoes - there is a lot of scrambling over large boulders as you navigate the extensive rock pavement. Check the tides and make sure you have plenty of time around low tide to enjoy your discoveries. Don't expect to come home with handfuls of loose fossils but be prepared to enjoy vast boulders and pavements embossed and decorated with fossils (most ammonites) of all sizes.Written June 23, 2022
- We turned up almost by accident to bump into the most amazing volunteer, Sue, who proceeded to give us one of the best tours we've ever had of a working, living attraction, from raising the sluice gate, to making the flour, to the history of milling - and on top of that just standing in the living, moving mill, feeling it work was incredible. Sue was clear, helpful and highly educational in her approach and involvement of myself and my 8 year old son. We'd highly recommend visiting!
Although it's free to enter, donations are encouraged.Written August 3, 2022
- Love Lyme Regis. Very pretty and quaint seaside town. Just back from visiting over the Queens Platinum Jubilee. Extremely busy but used the Park & Ride. Brilliant idea as the parking in town is tricky, but is wasn't built for all the tourists!!!
Lots of places for coffee and restaurants. Gardens overlooking the sea. Just perfect. Will visit again.Written June 7, 2022
- A nice beach adjacent to the Cobb. Largely pebbles, and always wet as the high tide comes right up to the Cobb walls.
No dogs - hurrah!
Plenty of other good walks nearby as well - the Cobb itself, the promenade, fossil hunting walks...
Also dozens of cafes and restaurants.Written April 22, 2022
- Dropped in whilst walking through the courtyard on our way home, some very good beer and cider and a lovely courtyard to sit in. Really nice place to sit in the sun and chat to other customers over a drink.Written August 2, 2022
- On a visit to Lyme Regis on a very hot day, this was a great place for lunch and to share under a nice tree!
Worth a wonder if you walk along the prom.
Great views of the Bay and harbour from the top.Written June 16, 2022
- Saw Slapstick Picnics version of the Importance Of Being Earnest. A 3 person performance. What a funny show and a great night out. Will see them again if they tour anywhere near us. A great night to end our holiday.Written July 15, 2022
- A chaotic, eccentric, treasure trove of books. Whatever the genre or topic, you'll find something that grabs your attention amongst the piles of books stacked absolutely everywhere.Written November 21, 2021
- A lovely beach with imported sand, which makes it very different from all of the other local pebble beaches. We were there during the school Easter holidays so it was very crowded, but great to see kids making sandcastles, sand pies and digging huge holes in the sand. Makes a nice change from seeing kids on mobiles and electronic gadgets!
Plenty of cafes, shops and toilets adjacent.Written April 22, 2022
- A simple grave - to one of the first and greatest palaeontologists.
A great view from the churchyard over the bay.Written September 21, 2021
- Although Belmont is booked for two years there is a waiting list, but you can visit during the open weekend in September. It has been decorated beautifully in the period in which it was built but with a beautiful kitchen with all mod cons. It sleeps 8 with two twin rooms and two doubles. One of the the twin rooms is on the ground floor with an large ensuite and there are ramps for the front step if you have elderly or disabled guests staying. Its a great place to stay with fantastic views.Written January 20, 2019
