Getting Around Lyme Regis

Lyme Regis is a small town and most places of interest are easy to get to on foot or by bike. 

If you are thinking about exploring the world-famous Jurassic Coast, the South West Coast Path national trail passes through Lyme connecting with Charmouth in the east, Seaton in the west and beyond. There are many other walking routes to explore around the town and the neighbouring towns and villages. 

By bus 

The number 71 town bus service connects the Cobb with the town square and one of the main car parks at Holmbush, including other areas within the town.  

If you are looking to explore the coast or other Dorset towns and villages, the Jurassic Coaster buses are fantastic options. 

The Jurassic Coaster X53 bus connects Lyme with Weymouth via Charmouth, Chideock, Bridport, West Bay, Burton Bradstock and Abbotsbury. 

The Jurassic Coaster X51 bus also travels to Weymouth via Charmouth, Chideock, Bridport, Winterbourne Abbas, Poundbury and Dorchester. 

If you are heading into neighbouring Devon or Somerset, you’ll need to catch the X51 or X53 bus to Axminster Railway Station for onwards travel.
