Charmouth and the Covid-19 virus - Update

Normally we welcome visitors to Charmouth at this time of year and by now many people would be enjoying our marvellous beach and scenery, the Charmouth Heritage Coast Centre, our holiday parks, pubs, cafes and shops. Due to Government guidance most of these are currently closed. Holiday parks, beach huts, cafes, pubs, the Charmouth Heritage Coast Centre and playing field equipment will remain closed until further notice.

However, the beach car parks and toilets are open daily. The toilets will be open 9-5 but closed during cleaning (three times a day).

There are still therefore only limited visitor facilities in Charmouth at present and you should bear this in mind if visiting.

Please observe social distancing at all times for the safety of you and others.


Britain's most beautiful coastline

Charmouth and the Jurassic Coast contain some of the most beautiful and accessible coastline in the UK. In just three hours from London or Birmingham you reach the spectacular fossil rich beaches, the rolling hills, and the fabulous unspoilt countryside.

It is no coincidence that the area is England's only UNESCO Natural World Heritage Site, and also an Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The beach between Charmouth and Lyme Regis is the only UK entry in the National Geographic 21 Best Beaches in the World 2017. But it's not just beaches and fossils, there are miles of beautiful countryside, with much managed by the National Trust. Country walks, the South West Coast Path, country pubs and thatched cottages will remind you why the area was a favourite with literary greats such as Jane Austen and Thomas Hardy. So why not come and visit Charmouth and unspoilt West Dorset.
