West Bay Discovery Centre, West Bay, Bridport, DT6 4EN.

Welcome to West Bay Discovery Centre, a multi award-winning visitor centre providing an insight to West Bay and the Jurassic Coast.

Situated on the edge of the beach in the charming fishing village of West Bay we are located inside the former historic Methodist Church and tell the stories of West Bay both past and present. The spectacular scenery of West Bay was the location of the TV drama  “Broadchurch” and the Church was even featured in the first series.

We use interactive experiences to make learning about West Bay fun for all ages. Our challenge to visitors is to make your own discoveries, then come back and share them with us. We offer changing themed exhibitions and aim to provide the latest local information.  A programme of talks, guided walks, and events are also on offer.

 We also have a small gift area and are proud to offer products from local producers. We are a charity and admission is free, but to do this we depend on donations from our visitors to meet our running costs.

What's on

We have events for all the family come and be inspired and have fun!...
