Wembury in South Devon is a magnet for wildlife – its rocky cliffs are home to nesting seabirds and the rocky shore, slate reefs and massive wave-cut platforms provide one of the United Kingdom’s best spots for marine life.
Wembury and the surrounding coastline form a Marine Conservation Area (MCA) and a Special Area of Conservation (SAC). These go some way to shielding it from the human pressures.
Wembury Marine Centre is the ideal place to learn about the surrounding area and its wildlife through interactive displays, tanks, regular Rockpool Safaris and other marine themed events. The Centre also explains the part you can play in keeping Wembury special.
Wembury Marine Centre is open every day from April – end of September, we open with support from volunteers so please contact us to double check we are open before making a special journey. Details of our 2018 events will be listed shortly, please check back for updates.
