Wander round narrow streets and along the South West Coastal Path.
If you’ve ever seen French Lieutenant’s Woman or read the novel by John Fowles, you’ll know how dramatic and romantic this mystical seafront town is with its cobbled streets and fossil hunting heritage. A walk out on the Cobb is a must and you might just spot Adrian Gray in his signature Indiana Jones hat, who has made a fine art out of balancing impossibly large stones precariously on one another.
Just wandering hand in hand round the narrow streets, you’ll come across enticing art galleries. Step just out of town and you’ll come to the Undercliff, one of the first National Trust Reserves created over the years from a series of landslips. Head off along the South West Coastal Path and you’ll soon reach Golden Cap, the highest point on the South Coast with memorable views back over Lyme Bay.
