Welcome to the Westgate on Sea Heritage Centre

Founded in 2007, the Westgate Heritage Centre aims to tell the story of Westgate on Sea, a unique Victorian development, from 1865 the year when the first houses were built to the present day by a series of displays called “Time Line”.

We are open regularly throughout the year to browse our archives, speak to our volunteers or for our monthly talks about rich heritage of Westgate-on-Sea, please see the details in the Opening Times section.

Jean lived in Westgate for many years and is a loyal member of the Heritage Centre now. She has many fascinating memories, which she is willing to share - for example, of the first pancake races, her wedding in St Saviour’s Church, her time working at Wellington House Boys’ School and many more.
