There is free time at the beginning of each afternoon on every recorder course.  Some people decide to arrange informal playing, in groups or on their own, or to book private lessons.  Others decide to go for walks and explore the local area.  Victoria House is a 5 minute walk from the High Street in Lyme Regis and a 10 minute walk from the beach.

Lyme Regis gardens and CobbLyme Regis sits at the heart of the spectacular and dramatic Jurassic Coast. This coastline is England’s first natural World Heritage Site and Lyme is renowned for its fossils, its diverse geology and abundant wildlife.

Along the seafront, newly landscaped gardens provide the ideal spot to  relax and enjoy the stunning views.

Lyme’s beautiful, sheltered, south-facing beaches have recently benefited from a coastal protection scheme. Completed in 2007 the scheme has provided easier access and a larger beach area.

For many centuries, Lyme Regis has attracted and inspired writers and artists.  Turner and Whistler both painted here and Jane Austen wrote Persuasion after her visit in the early 1800’s.  More recently the town featured in John Fowles’ The French Lieutenant’s Woman.  The many galleries in the town display the work of the current generation of aspiring painters. 

The River Lym, from which the town takes its name, is a very short walk from Victoria House.  A very pleasant walk follows it down into Lyme where it winds lazily through the maze of narrow streets and shops.  As you wander through the town you will find boutiques, galleries and historic buildings, all leading to the harbour and Lyme Regis' famous Cobb.
