Keep in touch with all the news from the Geopark!





Welcome to the English Riviera Geopark and a landscape of dramatic changes, of exploration and discovery.



A landscape untouched by glaciation, revealing stories unseen elsewhere in the world. Stories of tropical seas and scorching deserts, raised beaches and drowned forests, hippopotami and mammoth, straight-tusked elephant and sabre-toothed tiger, cave bear and earliest man.
