What’s on

West Bay Discovery Centre is now temporarily closed.

We managed to stay open all the way to the end of our October 2020 season and the last 3 and a half months we have been open have gone far better than we could have hoped for. Thank you so much everyone for your support.

We will be closed over Winter and re-opening again when the time is right following the third national lockdown. We will kick off with our next exhibition on plastics called ‘Turning the Tide’. 

Here’s hoping 2021 is a bit kinder to us all and we look forward to seeing you all in the Centre next year!


West Bay Discovery Centre organises and presents a range of events throughout the year, generally linked into our pop up exhibitions. Our aim is to provide a series of enjoyable experiences for our community.

These events can cover quite a range of activities, but they all relate in some way to the life, culture, nature and landscape of West Bay.

If you are interested in collaborating with us in putting on an event please contact us.
