Visit Lyme Regis, Chesil Beach, the Isle of Portland and Portland Bill Lighthouse & Visitor Centre. Lyme Regis My visit to Lyme Regis was in early October so it was fairly quiet. The town is a very popular place in the height of summer and parking could be a bit tricky, maybe arrive a bit earlier in the morning to avoid the crowds. Lyme Regis is probably best known for the Cobb, on a calm day you can walk along the Cobb. Visit the Lyme Regis Museum it is full of local history, geology and fossil displays or join a guided fossil tour. The sound of the sea receding on the pebbles is incredibly soothing. Park in Holmbush Car Park, it has 5 designated motorhome spaces. Chesil Beach This is quite an amazing sight, driving down the B3157 towards Portland you’ll see it in front of you. The beach is the longest in the UK, it’s an 18 mile long shingle barrier beach running from West Bay to Portland and is one of Dorset’s most famous landmarks. Drive on the A35 and at Bothenhampton turn on to the B3157 towards Weymouth. The view is stunning and there are a few places to stop off to take in the view. If you stop off in Portland and park in the Masonic car park this will give you good access to the beach, campervans and motorhomes are allowed to park during the day but no overnight sleeping. It’s a breathtaking sight once you are on top of the beach looking out to sea, up to Portland and back towards West Bay. Address: Victoria Square, Portland is just off the Victoria Square roundabout as you are driving towards the Isle of Portland. Isle of Portland From the carpark, follow the A354 to Fortuneswell and take the third exit on to Wide Street towards Portland Bill. Head towards Weston and Southwell, this road will then lead to the lighthouse. Parking information can be found here. Head back out to Portesham and stay at Portesham Dairy Farm Campsite
