There were some brilliant exhibits and some amazing items for sale, but they were a bit on the pricey side. However, still a brilliant place, well worth a look around!

This shop has just about everything, with very friendly helpful staff. It is well stocked with easily viewed display cabinets. Unfortunately a majority of the pieces we were interested in were out of our price range.

One of the best fossil shops in the UK. A good place to just spend an hour browsing, or to blow way too much money on something novel.

There is so much to look at, lots of goodies like fossils, jewellery and different gems and stones at very reasonable prices. Staff friendly, good place to find a souvenir so worth a visit.
