Located right next to the sea in the ancient Dorset town of Lyme Regis, the Marine Theatre is a unique wedding venue with breathtaking views of Lyme Bay and 95 miles of Jurassic coastline, part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The auditorium is a fantastic space for larger weddings, while smaller parties and arrival drinks can be hosted in the balcony bar, which has views along the coast. The stage provides an excellent space for speeches as well as live music, and the auditorium has a wooden semi-sprung floor, ideal for dancing the night away! Technical and lighting assistance for speeches and music is provided. You would also have exclusive use of the venue, which includes two dressing rooms, two bars, an outside forecourt, stage, and backstage areas. 

Discounts are available for out of season and weekday weddings.
