West Bay, made famous by the BBC series Broadchurch, is known for its colourful harbour, expanse of beaches and majestic cliffs. Traditional food huts selling a range of seaside fare overlook the harbour and there are many other choices of eateries and bars, some of which also have waterside views. Boat trips can be taken from West Bay to Lyme Regis, as well as fishing trips for fishing enthusiasts. Why not leave the car behind and take a half-hour walk along the river past Palmers Brewery and into the popular market town of Bridport, which is just a couple of miles away. The pretty town offers plenty of great places to eat and drink, as well as markets on Wednesdays and Saturdays, and a thriving selection of boutiques selling antiques and vintage curios, should you wish to seek out some treasures. There are several glorious beaches nearby including Eype, Seatown, Charmouth, Hive Beach and Chesil Beach. Part of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site, the coast is perfect for family holidays, fossil-hunting, fishing and diving. Heading inland there are many places of interest including Forde Abbey, the Kingston Russell Stone Circle, Eggardon Hill, Lewesdon Hill and Lambert’s and Coney’s Castle.
