Things to do in Seaton.

More ideas and posts coming soon.

As I start to get this blog page up and running with some interesting ideas, here are a few things we did last year to give you some inspiration.

Seaton Beach has always been a regular spot for us. It’s far less famous than nearby Lyme Regis, however for many locals it feels much more down to earth.

It may lack the picturesque regency buildings, winding streets, all year ice creams and sandy beach, but the crash of waves on the pebbles and the sweep of the bay across the Axe Estuary make Seaton equally lovely in its own way.

In the last few months Seaton has got even better with the opening of the new Jurassic Coast Visitor Centre called Seaton Jurassic and a new children’s adventure play area.

The long promenade is perfect for roller blades, scooters and push chairs.  The newly refurbished café The Hideaway at the end of the walkway has had some good reviews from friends (on the list to visit asap). Great fish and chips are to be found at the award winning Frydays and other cafes and ice creams are never too far away.


Paddle boarding and sea kayaking are on offer by Seaton Bay Watersports (more on that to follow soon as so far only daughter No 2 has been brave enough).

Back on the beach for the less energetic or after your activity making stone castles and people watching are pretty high on the list of things to do.

For a walk slightly inland, Seaton Wetlands along the Axe Estuary is a great option – even the youngest children will be able to spot some birds – here’s a post all about our visit to the Wetlands – click here.

I really hope you enjoy Seaton as much as I do, I have many happy memories being there as a child and more recently with my own children.

    Some great ideas and tips – thanks for sharing! Devon is such a spectacular part of the world and is filled with so many beautiful, natural scenery. It’s such a great place to share with the family on a holiday adventure. Great thought to partake in some Watersports – whether you’re an expert or looking for a new challenge.
