West Bay Discovery Centre

Situated on the edge of the beach in the charming fishing village of West Bay the  new West Bay Discovery Centre is located inside the former historic Methodist Church and tells the stories of West Bay both past and present. The spectacular scenery of West Bay was the location of the TV drama  "Broadchurch" and the Church was even featured in the first series.

We aim to offer something for all ages and interests. Our interactive displays cover many aspects of West Bay’s heritage. They include the former shipbuilding industry, commercial fishing, the development of tourism and the surrounding environment of the Jurassic Coast.

We also feature a range of amazing photographs, including a section on what makes West Bay special for people who live, work or visit West Bay.

The Discovery Centre provides up to date information on what’s on in West Bay and Bridport.

We also have a small gift area and are proud to offer products from local producers.

Admission is free, donations are welcome
