Christmas in Lyme Regis: Lights and Window Displays

christmas in lyme regis

 

Ever since I was a child I always loved looking at the lights and window displays in shops and around the towns/cities I lived in. Coming from America a Christmas display was always a big deal and I still remember the magical feeling of seeing New York City all ‘done up’ for Christmas and all the local shops in the towns I’d lived in decorated plus the light displays at the houses along the streets. I’ve been enjoying seeing the lights in Bridport, my new home, and thought it would be interesting to see what one of my favourite coastal towns, Lyme Regis, had done for flair during the festive season. So off Alan and I went today to see as well as become battered by the strong winds when we stopped at the Cobb…

One of my favourite cottages near the Cobb had its windows all done up.

  1. Since we did not have christmas trees growing up, my mum made up for it by buying as many christmas lights as possible so for me it’s more christmas lights than the tree or presents. I love seeing shops (and homes) display their christmas lights.
