Born in Lyme Regis, Sir George Somers
 became both a respected politician and a celebrated naval hero but remains best known for discovering Bermuda (known also as the Somers Isles) in 1609. Sir George and his colleagues were leading the 'Third Supply Fleet' on it's way to Jamestown, Virginia to relieve this ailing colony. Bermuda became a British colony and remains one to this day. His flagship, the Sea Venture, was heavily damaged in a hurricane, forcing the Admiral, captain, crew, passengers and the ship's dog to seek the first available land in order to survive. His heart was buried on the Island and his preserved body, returned to the Cobb and interred in Whitchurch Canonicorum, the village where he lived as an adult.

WALKS and TOURS

Do take advice about safe tide times before setting off for more than fifteen minutes hike, without a guide, along our beautiful beaches: - what appears to be an easy bit of ground to scramble over is more likely to be a treacherous mud slide - don't take a chance!

FOSSIL WALKS IN JULY

Get Fossiling on the Jurassic Coast! Join one of Lyme Regis’s famous fossil walks along this historic stretch of Dorset coast with Geologist Paddy Howe and Marine Biologist Chris Andrew. Some families return time and again to search with Paddy and Chris among the sand and rocks for fossils that have been washed down onto the beach after 190 million years. For adults and children alike, it’s an unforgettable experience.
