Hello to all our lovely readers, we hope you are all well? This week we wanted to bring you a blog all about Lyme Regis. It is a beautiful area of Dorset, just off the Devon border, with so much to see and do so we felt it deserved a blog all about it. Who knows, perhaps after discovering all you can do it will be next on your visit list!
Things to Do
Somewhere that is always lots of fun for the little ones is an aquarium and what better place to visit one than when you are at the seaside. The family-run aquarium is packed full of exhibits and despite its compact size, there is lots to see and do including helping to feed the Grey Mullet fish or hold a starfish.
Lyme Regis Museum
If you enjoy history and want to learn more about the local area, then you must visit the Lyme Regis Museum. The Museum itself has a stunning seafront view overlooking Lyme Bay. The museum is filled to the brim with interesting fossils and the history behind Mary Anning the famous fossil hunter. For something a little different, you can book a fossil tour/walk with one of the geologists where you get to take in the stunning beauty and history of the area.
The Marine Theatre
If you are looking for some drama, then where better than Marine Theatre which is located at the stunning seafront. In the open outside theatre, there are often live bands, comedy shows and plays so be sure to keep an eye out for the latest information while staying in Lyme Regis.
Langmoor and Lister Gardens
Langmoor and Lister gardens are an excellent place to visit for the whole family. The seafront gardens are award-winning and the perfect place to sit back and relax. The site has mini-golf and table tennis, perfect for those wanting a bit more excitement.
Town Mill is a beautiful attraction made up of a unique mix of working watermills, art galleries and artisan businesses. The site is centred around a medieval courtyard that boasts a beautiful garden. It is the perfect location for those who enjoy a wander with shops for browsing local goodies.
Places to eat
If you love food then you will not be disappointed when it comes to the Lyme Regis which is simply bursting with a wide range of restaurants, cafes, coffee shops and more. Below are just some of the ones we wanted to mention.
Town Mill Bakery
If you have decided to visit the Town Mill for the shops and galleries, then you do not have to travel very far to get yourself something delicious to eat. The Town Mill has a wonderful bakery that is filled with delicious bakes from quiches to cakes as well as other breakfast and lunch options.
The Whole Hog
If you are looking for the best sandwich in Lyme Regis, then you must make a stop to the Whole Hog which specialises in Hog Roast sandwiches.
For those of you who are after the wine and dine experience then Robin Wild is a must. It has an excellent selection of local wines as well as a tremendous menu. All the plates are dressed beautifully and the overall experience is one not to be missed!
