We look forward to welcoming you to West Bay Discovery Centre! The health and safety of our guests, staff and volunteers are always our number one priority. To keep everyone safe, we’ve introduced a number of additional hygiene and safety measures, which you’ll see in place when you next visit:

  • Providing anti-bacterial hand-gel as you enter the Centre.
  • The wearing of face masks is required inside the building.
  • A one-way route through the building.
  • Clear physical distance marking on the floor inside the Centre.
  • Limiting the number of people allowed inside the Centre.
  • Frequent cleaning of touchpoints throughout the Centre.
  • Contactless payments preferred.
  • Windows and doors will be left open to provide adequate ventilation.
  • Following recent Government guidance, NHS Test and Trace will no longer be a legal requirement upon entry to the Centre. We will still continue to display the QR code for visitors checking in using the NHS COVID-19 app. 
  • All our touch points and interactives are now available to visitors.

Please be patient with us as we adapt to these new ways of working and help us by following our guidelines to keep everyone safe. We have temporarily removed, adapted or replaced some of our touch interactives to make your visit safer. Interactives that are still available to use are cleaned regularly.

Thank you – we look forward to your visit.
