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.

Come and join our team!

Wembury Marine Centre is looking for 3 Marine Awareness Assistants (voluntary) to join our team for the 2019 season, full details on our blog post.

Upcoming events

Wembury Marine Centre is now closed for the winter months and will open again on Saturday 6th April 2019. Our events including Rockpool Safaris will begin again in April so please check back nearer the time.
