Seaton is a small coastal town in East Devon.

It faces onto Lyme Bay, to the west of the mouth of the River Axe with red cliffs to one side and white cliffs on the other. The towns of Axmouth and Beer are nearby. A sea wall provides access to the mostly shingle beach stretching for about a mile, and there is a small harbour.

Seaton sits on the 96-mile (155 km) long Jurassic Coast. From here it is possible to visit rock strata dating from three geological periods in a 185 million-year ‘geological walk through time’.

There is a small local shopping area and some good cafe's.
