Dorset is known for its tranquil countryside, and idyllic coves where you can escape from it all. But does...
For a charming seaside town, Lyme Regis packs a punch when it comes to dazzling fireworks! Twice a year, the town puts on show stopping firework displays that light up the seafront in technicolour.
Whether you’re visiting in August or November, Lyme Regis fireworks soaring above the harbour are truly an unforgettable sight.
As the nights start to draw in, we all look forward to being bundled up in a hat and scarf, eating a toffee apple whilst watching some spectacular fireworks shoot across the night sky. What could be better than the joy of holding a sparkler and basking in the warm glow of the bonfire?
Lyme Regis Bonfire Night is undoubtedly one of the best autumnal things to do in Lyme Regis, as the town’s celebrations are always spectacular. If you’re planning a trip to Lyme Regis in November, then it’s worth stopping by, as the family-friendly event will be fun for all.
The 2023 celebrations are set to be better than ever and will be held on Saturday 4th November.

The jewel in the crown of Lyme Regis Bonfire Night celebrations are the sensational Lyme Regis fireworks, which will be fired from The Cobb at 6:30pm.
You can view the display from anywhere along the seafront, including Langmoor and Lister gardens. The display is free of charge, but a collection box is passed around to fund future displays, so it’s a good idea to bring some cash with you.
After the fireworks, a huge bonfire is lit on the nearby sandy beach, for everyone to huddle around and keep warm.
The event is open to anyone and can be accessed by bus or train into Lyme Regis. If you’re driving, there is limited parking available, so it’s a good idea to park at Holmbush or Charmouth Road Car Park, both a short distance away. Then, you can walk down to the seafront before the start of the event.
Every year in august, Lyme Regis comes alive for Regatta and Carnival Week. The event kicks off with a magical summer firework display from The Cobb, which can be viewed from all along the seafront.
Organised by the Lyme Regis Regatta and Carnival Committee and the Lyme Regis RNLI, the week includes many other exciting events and culminates in the Grand Carnival Procession.
The provisional dates for the 2024 Lyme Regis Summer Fireworks have not yet been confirmed. We’ll keep you updated!
For reference, the 2023 fireworks display took place on Saturday 5th August, with the Grand Carnival Procession on Saturday 12th August.
If you’re coming to see the Lyme Regis fireworks for yourself, why not book a seaside escape in one of our Lyme Regis Holiday cottages for a front-row seat to the festivities?
