1. Coastal Path and Town Centre - 1.5 miles / 2.4 kms
From the eastern end of the coastal walk, with its panoramic views of the Jurassic Coast, stroll awhile by the side of the sleepless sea. Now it’s up into the town past an historic theatre, a mecca to fossils, a timeless church and a dinosaur museum. Next walk precariously between two waterways leading to a working mill, before descending back to the town centre, and finish at the gateway to Lyme’s gorgeous gardens.

Take a while to explore the beautifully sculpted Langmoor Gardens and the action-oriented Lister Gardens, before descending to a superb sandy beach with its variety of places to eat and to drink. Now walk round the spectacular harbour, bounded on one side by the theatrically acclaimed Cobb, before ending at a fascinating aquarium, and breathtaking views of the town, the harbour and the vast open sea.

"The two walks were real eye-openers! We've been to Lyme a couple of times before, and explored the lovely beach, and sea walks - but we hadn't realised how much history there is to discover in the hidden-away streets and paths which honeycomb the town. Thanks so much!"
