Porlock Visitor Centre
You only have to contact the Porlock Visitor Centre to realise that its claim to be unsurpassed as the friendliest and most helpful Visitor Centre in the South West is no idle boast.
Porlock is a great place to stay and from which to explore Exmoor whether you choose to walk on the moor, ride a bike or a horse, or go by car. Whatever activity you select you can be sure that our friendly staff will be able to help you, as they do not just resolve your Exmoor Accommodation problems, but have a wide selection of maps, guides and general information to which they can add their own individual store of local knowledge. In fact a visit to the centre can often be a memorable experience in itself.
Not only will you find out about Porlock and the Vale of Porlock but information concerning the whole of Exmoor, its history, geology and archaeology, much of which is to be found in the publications of The Exmoor National Park Authority and the National Trust. You will even find there some of the bones of an aurochs that were uncovered by the sea a few years ago in the remains of the prehistoric forest off Porlock Weir.
