We scoured the beach for Fossils as this was on my bucket list...and luckily I found a few. Reportedly it is better to visit after a storm, (which is why we chose November for our visit) unfortunately the weekend was as sunny as any in the summer, but we still had a fantastic time!

An enjoyable afternoon fossil hunting on Monmouth beach. Best done at low tide so be mindful of when you are going. Good shoes are highly recommended as the large rocks can be tricky to walk over.

We were very lucky with the weather during our weekend down in Lyme Regis and this enabled a fantastic walk along the quite long beach. I will mirror other reviews and recommend strong walking shoes due to lots of rocks and other loose items along your stroll just waiting to rein havoc on your ankles. We found quite a few... More

Came to Lyme Regis on day trip. Unfortunately the tide was in so could not walk along the beach to do fossil hunting but still a remarkable sight with the waves crashing upon the steps. It was hard to believe a coupleof hours ago you could have seen the beach.

First visit to Dorset but not the last. Lyme Regis has it all, a beautiful clean beach with little pubs and cafes along the front for Al Fresco drinking/dining. Plenty of small shops selling all manner of things. Don't drive down to the front to park but into Charmouth road car parking, £2 for all day with a gentle stairway... More

There are some lovely large fossils in rocks further down the beach, but if you're lucky there are some smaller ones to pick up. Top tip is to wear walking shoes!

Yes it's a beach but famous for its fossils...luckily although I enjoyed smashing rocks with a hammer I found nothing, but there are many fossils clearly out in the open. We did find some and spent a good few hours there tinkering away. Go as a couple, take the kids just stay safe

The Jurassic Coast is fabulous (fancy not knowing that in my youth!). We first stayed in the Bay Hotel - sadly no longer a hotel, as it was magical being on the beach, and over a great restaurant, with a view of the Elizabethan harbour wall and more. We next stayed in an Airbnb flat - so quirky and close... More
