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

Lovely little place crammed full of places to eat / drink, fossil shops, etc. Parked cheaply at top of the hill (might be a challenge for some). There are other car parks in town but more expensive. We walked along promenade past the small beach...More

Having walked the parade, & the Cobb, we decided to continue as it was a lovely day; & we had no pressing engagements. Tide was in, beautiful location, lovely views; but not sure we reached the fossil bit before turning back. Getting old!

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.
