Wednesday 20th March 2024

  Vernal Equinox   The Spring Equinox is the first day of spring and occurs when the sun passes the equator moving from the southern to the northern hemisphere.  The sun is directly overhead at the equator and day and night are of approximately equal lengths. At equinox, the Sun rises everywhere on Earth (except the Poles) at about 6am in the morning and sets at about 6pm in the evening (though this can vary a little when time zones and daylight saving etc

 are taken into account).

Tides along the Lyme Regis coast are among
highest and lowest of the year

 Celebrating the Dorset Landscape

30th January 2024 - 31st March 2024

The next solo exhibition at Lyme Regis Museum’s Rotunda Gallery is Miranda Pender’s vibrant collection of semi-abstract Dorset landscapes.  Recognisable without being realistic and playing freely with colour, curve and contour, these acrylic paintings give the viewer a quirky perspective on familiar landscape features, and their bright and bold colour palettes create a spirit of light-hearted optimism

Tuesdays- Saturdays from 10am until 5pm/Sundays 10am-4pm;  check website www.lymeregismuseum.co.uk for holiday openings and admission charges.

Lifeboat Week 2024
 Saturday 27th July -Friday 2nd August


The Lym Valley Croquet Club 
Croquet is a fascinating game. We play a highly social version and a highly tactical version. All equipment is provided, and rather like riding a bike, it's easy at first, but gets more difficult the nearer you get to the Tour de France!

 We play at the King George Field in Uplyme (by the cricket ground).



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!
