We spent a great two hours with Flick and our two children aged 7 and 9 exploring and finding dinosaur cast footprints and many fossils. She was very informative and talked at the... read more

We spent a great two hours with Flick and our two children aged 7 and 9 exploring and finding dinosaur cast footprints and many fossils. She was very informative and talked at the right level for the children and for us. We filled our carrier bag with our finds and time on a beach will never be the same again... More

Great afternoon for all the family. Flick, the tour guide was so knowledgable, so approachable. We began the tour not knowing much about fossils to being able to spot and find dinosaur bone, crystals and much more. Can't recommend highly enough. Great value for money. Memories and fossils to treasure from this brilliant experience.

If you like dinosaurs the history of dinosaurs looking for fossils and bones and maybe even the odd bit from the stone age then this is well worth doing £12 for a family, my 2 boys 9 and 11 and my Mum (In her 50'S) myself being 32 :-) had such a great time doing this fossil hunt/walk we learnt...

our guide, Kirsty, met us at brook chine car park and gave us a talk about the area of brook and what type of fossils we could find on the beach then let us loose! The 2 hours went very quickly my kids found a quartz crystal in one stone. It was good value for money. Wear wellies and bring... More

Great time with Felicity on the fossil hunting trip in Brook Bay. Despite the pouring rain, we learnt a lot and found lots of fossils. Great value for money and good for all ages.

I want to thank Felicity (or Flick for short) for a really enjoyable day out at the beach. It was a brilliant sunny day and my nephew was completely captivated with all the fossil facts that Flick was telling us. The first hour was walking across the beach as Flick showed us all the important stones and locations along the... More

This was really good value for money which means you are on a winner straight away. I think I paid about £12 for a family of 4. Our guide, Flick, was passionate about her subject and this shone through. Personally I have zero interest in dinosaurs (sorry Flick!) but even I got sucked in and really enjoyed all the dinosaur...

If walking along a wet windy beach for two hours whilst not really sure what you're looking for sounds fun then this is for you. We met our guide in the car park and had a short talk about the different kinds of stores/fossils to look for. We then made our way to the beach and the rest of the... More
