Fossil hunting deserves a special mention as The Jurassic Coastline is the most popular area in the UK to collect fossils. Lyme Regis, is known for being our fossil capital, with plenty of fossil shops, museums, guided tours and you'll see that some of the lampposts are even sculptured like ammonites!
The Jurassic coast is a stunning area to walk the South West coastal path. This area has recently become more popular due to the ITV drama series called 'Broadchurch' that was filmed right here in West Bay. There is now a Broadchurch Trail in and around West Bay and The Bridport Arms is right in the middle of it at the beginning of the beach where Danny's body was found!
