Is Lyme Regis quiet? We want a seaside quiet holiday...no amusement arcades or crowds of folk. Just somewhere to chill.
Yes. But not soporific.

What`s wrong with that ?
slightly old fashioned as most people just say car - but that suits Lyme.
In season Lyme is packed out with tourists (and there were a fair number of people on a sunny day in winter) but it's not really touristy. Charmouth is quieter and has a beach with a fair amount of sand if you have children to consider.
Seaton has the Gateway and Lyme the Marine theatre for possible evening entertainment.
I am a bit old fashion Radios are still called wireless sets and TVs are television sets .
Don`t know why the " Brilliant " post was removed. I am used to that sort of thing.
Lyme is old fashioned, quant, busy with people during holiday periods, hard to park,has aa lovely harbour and small beach but no arcades, fairs or kiss me quick hat. That would all be at Weymouth.
Charmouth is busy people wise with nice beach but not a lot there.
You cannot really escape people on the dorset coast at holiday time.
Lyme Regis is a quietly busy little beach resort with an abundance of cafes and restaurants, fish n chip and ice cream parlours and a reasonable sized amusement arcade. It has a quaint harbour, a sandy beach, pebbly in others, a fab theatre, playing fields for the children and a golf course just up the hill.
