What’s on

Our latest pop up exhibition Buried in Time celebrates the 20th anniversary of the World Heritage Coast designation and features the coastal geology of the West Bay area.

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.

Guided Walks Self Guided Walks Broadchurch Trail South West Coast Path Walks
