Lyme Regis Bay
Lyme Regis boasts breathtaking scenery and a special mystique, making it a sparkling resort for all seasons. Its historic Cobb and harbour are iconic features, set against moody blue cliffs yielding fossilised evidence of life on earth millions of years ago.
Situated at the heart of the Jurassic Coast, Lyme Regis is a major centre for fossil collecting, recognised and acclaimed worldwide.
Famously depicted in the film version of John Fowles' The French Lieutenant's Woman and Jane Austen's Persuasion, the resort's unique appeal wins her a deserved accolade - a gem in the Westcountry's holiday playground.
Mounted on the Marine Theatre in Lyme Regis, this webcam pans across Lyme Bay from Golden Cap in the east to the Lyme Regis Cobb and harbour in the west.
The camera zooms in to focus on the famous Cobb buildings, Marine Parade and Cobb Gate at the bottom of the high street. In bad weather you can see the waves breaking high over the Cobb wall where the iconic image of Meryl Streep was shot for the film "The French Lieutenant's Woman".
