My husband John has lived in Lyme for most of his life and is passionate about the area and its history. He has probably the largest collection of twentieth century Lyme Regis postcards in the world and his knowledge of Lyme's development during the last century makes him an ideal guide. He has a great knowledge of the geology and natural history of the area and can tailor tours to guests requirements.

Lyme Regis is a unique coastal town with a dramatic backdrop of unstable cliffs. Much of the architecture in the old town dates back centuries and its world famous harbour, the Cobb, over 700 years.

We loved this walking tour. John is a great guide. Engaging, articulate and passionate about his subject. Lyme Regis is a beautiful town and its history was vividly brought to life on the tour. We got so much more from our visit than if we had wandered about by ourselves.
