The undercliffe is a strenuous walk from Lyme Regis to Seaton. It is not a gentle amble around Lyme Regis, don’t be fooled. We left our car at Seaton caught the bus to Lyme and walked back. It is a days walk. Take food and...More

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

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

There are two ways to enjoy the cliffs. One is to walk alongside them on the beach. Lots of large rocks and you need to be steady in your feet to do this walk. Proper footwear is required. But the walk is stunning with the...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!

Parking is P & D but we parked up the road a little for nothing. Cliffs right next to walks. Not sure about fossil hunting to be honest as didn't check it out sorry

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.
