Whether walking, sailing, fishing, kayaking, golfing or cycling, Seaton is a popular place to enjoy the seaside, views and tranquillity. Wander the peaceful town centre and you will discover shops catering for day to day shopping, independent food shops and the more unusual quirky must sees!
Prominently situated on the Jurassic East Devon Coastline, the town of Seaton is steeped in history. More recently, one of the biggest stashes of Roman loot ever found was discovered in a local field on the edge of the town. 22,000 coins dating from the reign of Emperor Constantine were uncovered by a local amateur metal detector, with the coins now on show in Exeter Museum.
Seaton Wetlands, 304 hectares of National Nature Reserve, is reported to be one of the best areas in the country to spot wildlife. The Seaton Electric Tramway travels through the beautiful marshland and reed beds alongside the river Axe as it makes its way to the sea at Axmouth. With the new Seaton Jurassic Visitor Centre now prominent in the town, which is also on the South West Coastal Path, Seaton offers plenty for all ages.
There is a great choice when it comes to eating out, whether you fancy a takeaway on the beach admiring the view, a delicious Devon Cream Tea or a meal in one of Seaton's excellent restaurants sampling locally produced food.
