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

Group size – up to 25 people

This 1.5 hour session will take place entirely outdoors, where you will head straight onto the beach to hunt for fossils with your Guide. We will take you to the best places for finding fossils, and give you tips and tricks on how to hunt for them. Anything you find on your walk is yours to keep!

To get you up to speed and wet your appetite for fossil hunting, prior to your walk we will send you out an introductory talk video, where your Warden will give you an insight into the local rocks and fossils to be found here, and you’ll see plenty of examples of what to look for too.

We will be adhering to strict 2m social distancing for the duration of your fossil walk. Please do not visit if you or a member of your social bubble has displayed covid – 19 symptoms in the last 14 days. If you have booked a walk with us and start displaying symptoms, please contact us as soon as possible, where a full refund will be given.
