Explore Kimmeridge Bay

The Fine Foundation Wild Seas Centre, beside the slip-way, with interactive display and aquaria, provides a fascinating and innovative source of information, encouraging all ages to explore the bay, its ledges and rock pools or find out about the underwater nature trail for snorkellers. 

The places and attractions listed below have now re-opened after the Covid19 lockdown.

Opening hours should be checked on their websites. 

Overlooking the beach is Clavell Tower, a Georgian folly, built on the cliff edge.  In 1975, this was the inspiration for PD James’s murder story, the Black Tower. Recently the Landmark Trust relocated and restored the Tower to prevent it falling over the cliff.  It is now their most popular property and can be booked for self-catering breaks HERE. The public can visit it for free on regular open days. Please visit the Landmark website for details
