There is something for every member of the family at West Bay Discovery Centre. Our hands-on interactive activities are designed to provide a shared learning experience for families and are popular with all ages. This free visitor centre is perfect for families especially on rainy days.

There’s always something fun to do. The Centre is a great place to learn about West Bay. We love seeing our visitors playing: they can shelter boats from a storm, build a cliff and identify West Bay’s fishing catch or our local wildlife and feel in the  “hidey-hole” for creatures from the sea.
