Coastal heritage area
Our venue on East Street in Havant is less than a mile from Langstone Harbour, Hayling Island and the Solent coastline. Nearby are several sites of Special Scientific Interest and Special Areas of Conservation.
We celebrate and recognise this in our interactive Coastal Heritage area where you can find out about the formation of the area in our timeline, read about some of the species that live here and play with our microscope and range of specimens.
Located in our Café and Oyster Gift Shop space, the Coastal Heritage area is a fun place to spend some time and is particularly popular with children and on days when the sun doesn’t make a trip to the beach quite as possible!
