A good small marine centre right next to the beach. The beach has some fantastic rock pools with such diverse organisms in. The staff at the centre are brilliant and take out groups of children to survey the beach and the rock pools.

Easily accessible from the car park, the staff are always friendly and informative. They run rook pooling sessions where you can learn all about what exciting wildlife can be found in the sea and on the beach

Good interactive display of local marine ecology and aimed at all age groups. For young children there are marine related puzzles and art plus 2 small fish tanks. On certain days there are exploration visits to the near by beach.

This is a good place for educating children and learning things for adults too about plant life and creatures of the sea as it has a lot of information with pictures and people on hand to ask questions.
