Seaton Jurassic is conceived as markingÂ a point of arrival for visitors to the town. It is designed to encourage exploration of the Seaton natural environment balancing content, activity and interpretation, and offering an attraction that encouragesÂ year-round visits.
The Seaton Jurassic building celebrates the natural heritage of the Seaton area â€“ particularlyÂ as a â€˜Gatewayâ€™ to the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site â€“ and,Â through engaging with the local community and visitors to theÂ town, develop a long-standing support for its conservation.
The appearance of the building is intended to reinforce itsÂ position as a new landmark for Seaton and reflect the qualityÂ associated with the brand of World Heritage Status.
