The offer is valid until December 17 and is a way of saying thanks those who have raised money for good causes by buying a lottery ticket.

Seaton Jurassic is opening its doors for free to National Lottery players arriving before 1pm.

The offer is valid from December 11 to December 17 and is a way of saying thanks those who have raised money for good causes by buying a lottery ticket. Seaton Jurassic has benefitted from the Heritage Lottery Fund, which provided funds to help build the centre.

Ros Kerslake, chief executive of the Heritage Lottery Fund, said: “December is a wonderful time to experience the UK’s rich, diverse and exciting heritage, which has been transformed by more than £7bn National Lottery funding since 1994.

“This is a small gesture of thanks and a way of giving something back to the people who buy tickets.”

Any visitor who presents a National Lottery ticket or scratchcard between December 11 and December 17 before 1pm will receive free entry.

Paul Thrush of Seaton Jurassic added: “Thanks to National Lottery players we’ve been able to create a wonderful award-winning interactive exhibition that engages both adults and children alike.

“Our journey takes visitors back in time millions of years ago when Seaton was underwater and dinosaurs roamed the land.

“Some of the special effects and exhibits including our time ship are only here today thanks to lottery players.”
