The Cobb at Lyme Regis is a must see iconic landmark. Walk this historic harbour wall and recreate the scene where the character of Meryl Streep in the French Lieutenants Woman stands at the end of the Cobb looking out to sea.

We visited in Autumn & were taken by this unusual harbour with its anchor & canon, as well as its theatre right on the waterfront. Definitely worth the detour to see, if only to picture Meryl Streep in The French Lieutenant's Woman!

We visited Lyme on a clear, sunny but cold day. The walk on The Cobb was a lovely way to see the vista of Lyme Bay. A beautiful rainbow frames the town. lots of fishing boats and activity going on.

It helped that the sun was shining and the sea was perfectly calm. The boats in the harbour were very tempting, there are opportunities to go mackerel fishing. Lovely place to sit and watch the world go by.
