The winners of the 15th annual Michelmores Property Awards have been revealed, celebrating outstanding property and construction projects in Devon, Somerset, Bristol, Dorset and Cornwall, across ten categories. 

Congratulations to Seaton Jurassic, Seaton – winner of Leisure & Hospitality Project of the Year, sponsored by The Samphire Club

Seaton Jurassic, a project submitted by East Devon District Council, is a multi-use, community-led visitor centre. It allows visitors to enjoy an inspirational and educational time-travelling voyage – bringing to life the evolution of the Jurassic Coast, England's first Natural World Heritage Site. The centre comprises various internal exhibitions, including a specially adapted time-ship and a human-sized rockpool, as well as external wildlife gardens, where habitats representing the wetlands, the harbour, the beach and Seaton Hole can be discovered.

 

 

The winners were announced at an Awards Dinner on Thursday 15 June at the University of Exeter, hosted by comedian and actor Marcus Brigstocke.
