A new visitor centre for Northam Burrows is now open. The centre located just a stone’s throw from the award winning beach at Westward Ho! has been funded by £1.2m worth of funding from the Government’s Coastal Communities Fund and £400K from the Heart of the South West’s LEP Getting Building Fund.

The new facilities replace an older building which hadn’t been updated since it first opened in the 1980s. New facilities include a cafè, exhibition centre, mini aquarium and accessible changing facilities.
