Discover. Learn. Explore.
The Rampion Offshore Wind Farm Visitor Centre is now open in the newly refurbished Kings Road arches, just to the east of the i360 in Brighton, East Sussex.
With engaging and interactive displays, the Visitor Centre is an exciting and educational resource which school groups can utilise (once restrictions are eased).
The Visitor Centre is completely free but will need to be booked in advance for school groups, even if your visit will be self-guided, as the centre is a relatively small space and at times could be very busy with the general public.
Once restrictions ease, free school workshops can be arranged during the Autumn/Winter months, when we can offer exclusive use of the centre.
- Discover the importance of offshore wind energy

We are happy to adapt sessions to suit the requirements of each school, so please let us know!
The Visitor Centre can host one class at a time plus teaching staff and assistants, for pre-booked visits.
It should be noted that toilet facilities are not available within the Visitor Centre, but there are public toilets located along the seafront.
What is there to see?
The aim of the centre is to increase awareness and understanding of the wind farm itself, offshore wind energy and global climate change.
The centre houses exhibitions, interactive displays, games and videos, as well as a 360o virtual reality (VR) experience that will take you out to the wind farm itself!
