My eldest boy enjoyed this shop as he couldn't find any fossils on the beach so we had to buy him some.

A lovely shop in Lyme Regis full of a variety of fossils. The staff were very friendly and even helped us to identify some fossils we found on the beach. Well worth a look if you are in the area.

Despite being quite a small shop, the Fossil Shop has tons to see. I was very impressed by the range and quality of the fossils that were found in Lyme Regis or other locations on the Jurassic Coast. They also have a selection of other non-local fossils and a collection of gemstones from around the world. And the best part,... More

Not only interesting to visit as a tourist attraction, however, more so if you want to learn more about history and science. Really great shop to spend over an hour just checking out the fossils and admiring the gems.

This is such a good place to visit. Out little grandsons loved it. They learnt about geology, social history, geography and much more and went home with some exciting 'finds'. Tricky parking with a hilly walk. Tools of the trade on sale and there are fossils to see on the beach nearby. Have fun.

In may shops you are served by assistants who know little about what they are selling-and are more intent on a quick sale than genuine service. Not so for the Fossil Shop in Lyme Regis. Here a well laid out store, with fascinating artifacts to look at and purchase make up just half the experience. More up-to-date museuam than shop,... More

A charming, spacious shop, which caters for everyone. Wether you are looking to buy a magnificent polished fossil for bookends or just wanting to buy a small birthstone - The Fossil shop offers it all. Just ask the friendly and informed staff about anything and they are more than happy to help. My daughter enjoyed buying some Russian Emerald for... More
