In 2002 the Foulness Conservation & Archaeological Society (FCAS) converted the former Foulness Primary School into the Foulness Heritage Centre. The renovation work was carried out by volunteers with the aid of grants from ‘Awards for All’ and QinetiQ. Donations also came from the ‘Bishop of Bradwell’s Fund’ and many well wishers. It opened in February 2003 and receives a constant stream of visitors from both the UK and abroad ever since.

The Heritage Centre is open to members of the public from 12pm-4pm on the first Sunday of the month from April to October. Those wishing to visit the centre will be permitted access to Foulness from 11:45am. As from May 2023 visitors to the Heritage Centre will need to pre-book. To do this go to the Foulness Heritage Centre’s own website and follow the links

Entering MOD Shoeburyness to visit the Heritage Centre permits you to use the main spine road to travel to and from the centre but for no other purpose or access and visitors must not deviate from this route.

FCAS also promotes Foulness Island by organising talks, walks and visits to the Heritage Centre throughout the year for clubs, church groups and archaeological and historical societies.
