Beach Cleans

Come and join us on our FREE Charmouth Beach Cleans! We run a few beach cleans a year to help clean up Charmouth beach and make it a safer place for both wildlife and us. 

We usually meet at the bottom of the Charmouth Heritage Coast Centre steps. All equipment is provided and you can stay for as long or as little as you like. Most of our beach cleans last 1.5 hours. 

All children need to be accompanied by an adult.

Check our list of marine events to see when the next beach clean is scheduled.

Rockpool Rambles

Covid-19 update: Currently we are unable to run our Public Rockpool Rambles until further notice.

Join the Marine Warden on a Rockpool Ramble to explore the fascinating creatures of the seashore and how they live, love and do lunch!

Suitable for any age, this event is run at Broad Ledge in Lyme Regis and lasts for 1 and ½ hours. As the tide goes out the ledges here are exposed and rockpools, which are full of life, are revealed. Our experienced Warden will help you to discover the amazing plants and animals living on our shores.


Charges: £4 Adult, £3 Child. All children must be accompanied by a paying adult.
