About West Bay
Fans of the TV show Broadchurch will spot some familiar sights, as many scenes from the series were filmed along the coast here.
What to Do
Take a ride on the Lyme Bay Rib Charter, for a high-octane view of the coast. Or go fishing off the pier and catch your own dinner! The kids can get involved too, trying their hand at crabbing from the pier.
For a fun family day out, head for the amusement arcades, with a choice between the hectic modern holiday park arcade, or the more traditional small arcade next to the George.
Top West Bay Travel Tips
The sandy beach has a strong undercurrent, so is best avoided if you aren't a strong swimmer.

Character cottage in a perfect location
The cottage is tastefully appointed with a real homely feel and is in a perfect location, only a minute's walk from the Main Street in Bridport. The garden is delightfully designed to create adventure and privacy. My 2 grandchildren, aged 6 and 8 years old, let their imaginations run riot.
The cottage is well appointed with washing machine and dishwasher and all the kitchen bits 'n' bobs needed to self cater.
Also the neighbours were extremely helpful and advised us on the best places to park.
I really hope to return. …
