Discover life under the lagoon, join a seashore scavenge or learn about wildflowers on the beach … we run a range of events and activities for all ages. Activities start from the Chesil Beach Centre unless stating otherwise.

Please dress appropriately - that means suitable footwear for outside activities (wellies are helpful for sea shore detectives), warm, waterproof clothing if cold/wet, and sun-cream and a hat for sunny weather. If the weather is really bad, phone the Centre to check the activity is going ahead.

Children are welcome to all activities; however they must be accompanied by an adult unless stated otherwise.
