Fossil Hunting Walks

Boy holding ammoniteJoin one of our guided Fossil Walks with the Wardens to find and take home your own Jurassic fossil!

This two hour session starts up at the Centre with a 20 minute talk from the Centre Warden about the fossils of Charmouth and how to find fossils on the beach. The group then heads out onto the beach with the wardens and spend the rest of the session looking for fossils.

The Centre has a high ratio of Wardens to members of the public on every walk. During school holidays booking is essential and we advise that you arrive 10 minutes before the walk is scheduled to start to pick up your tickets.

Charges: £8 Adult, £4 Child (2 years and under go free). All children must be accompanied by a paying adult.
Meeting point: Charmouth Heritage Coast Centre
Site information: Some uneven ground with sand, pebbles and boulders. Please note some areas of the beach are very muddy. Please be suitably dressed for the elements and wear footwear with good tread.
