Seaton Jurassic offers families the chance to discover hidden wonders and to even travel through time and find out how the Earth was formed.

Run by the Devon Wildlife Trust, the tourist attraction invites visitors to join in with a trip back to the 19th century, when fossil hunters and geologists were learning about previous inhabitants of the planet.

After that experience, there is the chance to discover the world of 200 million years ago. With a range of exhibits and interactive displays, youngsters can take control of their journey through the years and meet prehistoric creatures.

There’ll also get the chance to explore the depths in rockpools, as though they were in them, themselves.

The attraction offers indoor and outdoor facilities, so there is the opportunity to play beneath the waves in the infinity pod, search for fossils in the sand or explore the wildlife garden.

It is also possible to explore local natural wonders and get closer to the stories of the Jurassic Coast with an Access All Eras passport that allows visitors to go to the Discovery Points around Seaton and find the best of what Seaton’s Jurassic Coast has to offer.
