Cruising into Lyme Regis
A cruise ship will visit Lyme Regis for the first time at the end of May, highlighting the cruise industry’s enthusiasm for introducing new destinations to their UK itineraries.
The SilverSeas Explorer is a small, 5 star ship that specialises in taking its intrepid passengers on adventures to some of the most remote regions of the world, exploring hidden gems and inaccessible areas bigger cruise ships shun – from the polar regions and South America, to the fjords of Norway and coastal beauty of Africa, the SilverSeas Explorer encourages its passengers to connect with the natural wonders that surround them and uncover the beauty and history of the regions they visit.
Where does Lyme Regis fit among these exotic locations? Our town, is a hidden gem nestling on the stunning Dorset coast that deserves not to be overlooked and finding ourselves on the “must see” list for this prestigious cruise company is a real coup that the town should be proud of. With luck, it will herald the first of many such visits that will help to spread the word around the world that Lyme Regis is always worth a visit.
