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.
