Save The Three Cups Hotel

The Three Cups Hotel

Campaigning for preservation of the hotel where J.R.R. Tolkien stayed and gained inspiration for his mythology. Jane Austen, G.K. Chesterton, Tennyson and H.W. Longfellow were also guests. The hotel featured in the film, “The French Lieutenant’s Woman”. Please send articles to me, Andrew Townsend, at or add a comment. Thanks to David Moss for all his work. Comments are closed at WDDC for the plans to redevelop the site but you can still write to the papers.

The Economics of Art

On the BBC Radio 4 this morning, Tracey Emin explained the importance of visual arts to the economy of Margate, through J.M.W. Turner's connection with the town. Turner also had connections with Lyme Regis.

There are many other famous names from the literary arts associated with Lyme Regis. It is time for those responsible for the economic well being of the town to allow Lyme to prosper by ensuring the famous Three Cups Hotel re-opens to attract and accommodate tourists.
