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

10 of Britain’s best small museums, chosen by Guardian readers

Published by Editor on

Wow, we have made it into the National Papers! Many thanks to Karen who recommended us. We particularly loved the comment about our super helpful volunteers they are all amazing!

Reproduced from The Guardian see below:

West Bay Discovery Centre is so close to the beach you can hear the surf pounding on the shingle. Run by super-helpful volunteers, this small, child-friendly museum punches way above its weight. Through a fantastic collection of artefacts and archive photographs, it provides a fascinating insight into West Bay’s past, from its shipbuilding heyday, through its reinvention as a Victorian resort, to recent fame as the location for the TV series Broadchurch. It’s strong on natural history too, with interactive exhibits about the geology and wildlife of the Jurassic Coast, its storms and shipwrecks.
 Reopens 18 May, 11am-4pm Tues-Sun, free
