First thing coming to mind is of course fossil 'hunting', either in Lyme or Charmouth. Be really careful though and don't get close to the cliffs. They have a habit of crumbling...

Next best thing to do is cross border into East Devon. Within 15 minutes from Lyme Regis, you find:

Seaton Jurassic - great new Jurassic Coast experience cenre

Seaton Tramway - tram between Seaton and Colyton

Donkey Sanctuary (just before Sidmouth)

Beer Village and beach

Pecorama (Beer).

This website is a great resource too: http://jurassiccoast.org/

Should keep you busy!

Enjoy.

The sea life aquarium on the cobb is worth a visit. Or crabbing off the cobb.

Charmouth has a free fossil centre, good for a brief visit. Donkey sanctuary only requires a donation. Abbotsbury childrens farm abbotsbury-tourism.co.uk/childrens_farm/ Flamingo pool in Axminster - largely chlorine free

None of those are new.

I can definitely recommend the tram ride in Seaton, you go past the wetlands and can see man different types of birds, but for a little one a ride on the top of a tram is super. You leave from near the Jurassic centre which is also worth a look, there are very friendly and helpful staff with ideas of what to do. We were there last month arena will return.
