Part of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage site, and surrounded by areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Lyme Regis is famous for its fossils, an historic old town, the Cobb, and beautiful beaches. It’s a destination for food lovers, with Hugh Fearnly-Whittingstall’s River Cottage HQ and Axminster Canteen both close by and Mark Hix’s Oyster and Fish House in the town.
