Fossil hunting on the Jurassic coast

Get Fossilling on the Jurassic Coast! Join one of Lyme Regis Museum’s famous fossil walks along this historic stretch of Dorset coast with Geologist Paddy Howe and Marine Biologist Chris Andrew. Some families return time and again to search with Paddy and Chris among the sand and rocks for fossils that have been washed down onto the beach after 190 million years. For adults and children alike, it’s an unforgettable experience.
Your fossil walk ticket gives you FREE access to the museum where you will be able to see displays of rare fossils, learn all about Mary Anning, the famous early palaeontologist who once lived on the site of the museum and much more. 
Cost: £10 adults, children and students £5.
Each walk is limited to 15 people per guide. Start times for walks vary according to the tides and take about three hours. Walks can fill up quickly on the day so before travelling any great distance please contact the museum and book a place: telephone 01297 443370 or email.
