Visitor information for Seaton in Devon

  • Seaton

Situated at the mouth of the River Axe, Seaton is sheltered by the white cliffs of Beer Head and the red sandstone of Haven Cliff, which overlook the waters of Lyme Bay. The pebbled beach is backed by a walled promenade and the town is also blessed with a lovely harbour.

In the surrounding countryside there are dozens of walks to enjoy; an energetic walk along the South West Coastal path to Lyme Regis, via the Undercliff nature reserve, reveals some spectacular scenery.

The pedestrianised town centre offers a wealth of shops for those keen on a little retail therapy, and there is also a popular farmers' market held once a month on a Friday.

Seaton is famous for its unique Tramway that runs from Seaton through Colyford and into the picturesque town of Colyton. You can enjoy panoramic views of the Axe estuary where you will find herons, ducks, waders, cormorants and kingfishers plus other wildlife from the open toppers, whilst shelter from the weather is provided by elegant, enclosed single deckers.

A visit to the Axe Valley Heritage Museum, located at Seaton Town Hall in Fore Street, is an ideal way to learn about the history of Seaton. Fascinating displays show the phases of development of the area, including a collection of photographs showing the Seaton of yesteryear.
