A certain Dorset postcode has been named one of the coolest places to move to in the UK, according to The Times list 2022.

Dubbing it “Hollywood-on-sea”, the newspaper announced that the DT7 postcode – otherwise known as Lyme Regis – was among the trendiest places to be in the country.

The report said: “There has been a steady stream of A-listers parading past Lyme Regis’s sandy strand recently, with the town’s famous harbour, the Cobb, swiftly becoming Dorset’s answer to Hollywood Boulevard.”

Where to spot celebrities in Lyme Regis
