Lyme Regis in Dorset, England, is at the heart of the Jurrassic Coast World Heritage site and distinguished by its unique Cobb. This sturdy harbour defence was made famous by the opening scenes from the film adaptation of The French Lieutenant's Woman -- a classic novel written by Lyme Regis resident and author John Fowles. It also features in Jane Austen's novel Persuasion. Jane Austen, John Fowles, Beatrix Potter , Tennyson and JMW Turner are just some of the famous writers and artists who have visited and been inspired by Lyme Regis. Today, the town is teaming with galleries and bookshops selling the works of talented modern-day artists who have been drawn to the town by the beauty, peace and drama of its surroundings.Steeped in history, gilded by the sea and surrounded by stunning scenery, it's no surprise that so many creative people continue to make their home in Lyme Regis, drawing on its wealth of natural beauty and ancient heritage.
