Heart of the Jurassic Coast

Seaton boasts a diverse natural environment in a stunning geographical location at the heart of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site.

The Dorset and East Devon Coast World Heritage Site, known as the Jurassic Coast, is England’s only natural World Heritage Site, designated as such due to its incredible geology which represents 185 million years of the earth’s history in just 95 miles. The oldest Triassic rocks in East Devon are between 200-250 million years old and there are stunning examples of coastal sea stacks and cliffs, formed from distinctive desert-red sandstone contrasting with the striking white chalk landmarks such as Beer Head (c.90 million years) which are visible from Seaton’s beach.
