Lyme Regis is known as the ‘Pearl of Dorset’, befitting of a stunningly beautiful seaside town located on the coast of Dorset.
This historic fishing port is found at the mouth of the River Lym and is an incredibly popular place to live in Dorset. Here are some key points about Lyme Regis:

The first written evidence of a settlement here goes back to 774AD when it was initially gifted to the Abbot of Sherborne to set up a salt works.
In 1284, Lyme was granted a royal charter to add the title of ‘Regis’ to its name. Fast forward through the wars and sieges to the 18th century.
During this time, Lyme Regis had become a popular seaside resort, with influential artists, poets and writers visiting here throughout this time.
In 1903, Lyme Regis was granted a railway station, creating a boom in tourism. Sadly, in the 1960s, the town lost its railway due to huge cutbacks in a national scheme.
Currently, Lyme Regis attracts thousands of fossil hunters every year, and many have their eyes set on Lyme Regis as their future home.

First and foremost, even if you haven’t moved here in the summertime… as soon as the sun is out, make sure to head to Town Beach.
