 Autumnal Equinox:   The Autumn Equinox is the first day of the autumn season and occurs when the sun passes the equator moving from the northern to the southern 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).

15th August-1st October 2023

In this exhibition, two local artists--Mary Noon and Vivienne Littley--explore the constantly changing environments of our skies, seas and waterways through the media of watercolour, acrylics and collage.  They capture luminosity with metallics, drama with textures and emotional interaction through colour, offering the viewer a varied and exciting palette.

As they explain, “we have chosen ‘Water and Sky’ as our theme as we are constantly drawn to their ceaseless fluidity, movement and transformation, even within a few seconds of observation.  New colour spectrums emerge, expressing mood alterations, sometimes subtle, sometimes dramatic.  
New textures are created and dissolved, while the light continues to play in both mediums of sky and water, while exhibiting a symbiotic relationship in reflection and mood.” 

Tuesdays-Sundays from 10am until 5pm;

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!


Get Fossiling on the Jurassic Coast! Join one of Lyme Regis Museum’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. 

Each walk is limited to 15 people per guide. Start times for walks vary according to the tides and take about three hours.
