Lyme Regis Walking Festival

'One of the Finest Walks in the World'

‘One of the Finest Walks in the World’

 

 

Lyme Regis lies at the heart of the 95-mile long Jurassic Coast on the acclaimed South West Coast Path and is the perfect destination for walkers, especially in late Autumn when tumultuous seas provide dramatic vistas and skeletal trees are  shrouded in atmospheric autumn mists.

 

The Lyme Regis Walking Festival will suit all tastes with everything from family strolls to serious hiking.
