Visitors Information

How To Find Us

By Bus: First Bus, route 31, runs between Axminster and Dorchester. The X53 Jurassic Coast bus runs between Axminster and Weymouth. 9A runs between Exeter and Lyme Regis. X52 runs between Exeter and Bridport.

By road: The Town Mill is in the centre of Lyme Regis DT7 3PU

There is no public parking at the mill, so the site is best approached on foot. However, the mill is only a few minutes’ walk from several car parks – see the map above. From the large car park in Hill Road, walk down the hill to the bridge over the River Lym and turn right onto the path between the river and the millstream. This Riverside Walk leads you straight to us. To get to The Town Mill from the top of Broad Street, stroll down Sherborne Lane. At the bottom, turn right over the river, then right again onto the Riverside Walk. From the bottom of Broad Street, go left, up through the car park. This leads directly to The Town Mill via steps and a footbridge.



To avoid the footbridge and steps: follow Broad Street round to the traffic lights. Turn left into Coombe Street and continue for about 250 yards. Then take the first left and you’ll see The Town Mill straight ahead.
