Great little centre despite the parking charges which, to be honest were the same all along the coast. Plenty of things to do with a lovely little shop and a cafe which sold cheesy chips.

Charmouth is a delightful village in the heart of the Jurassic coastline. Less well known than its neighbour Lyme Regis, but in many ways more attractive. There is a pay and display car park right on the beach, plus a large car park suitable for motor homes. In the peak season an adjacent field is also opened so parking is... More

Fossil hunting tours run daily and very helpful and friendly staff. Brief for 20 mins then they take you to the beach and show you where the best and safest place to look for fossils.

The coast line was amazing and is littered with fossil stone (if one spends time to find it). Lots of hope for fishing. Enjoy the sea with your loved ones on a sunny day!!!

Some very interesting facts but compromised by poorly maintain display and live (just) exhibits is sea water tanks. With some thought and new ideas could be SO much more.

The museum displays many fossils found in Charmouth and Lyme Regis. Unfortunately you are not allowed to take pictures of them which is a bit of a disappointment.

Booked online for fossil hunting walk on 22 Aug for two adults and our four year old. We also took our 12 week old baby in a sling. Booking process was easy. Guide (Phil) was very knowledgeable and his talk kept the interest of the wide age range of children in the group as well as the adults. Took us... More

The Grandchildren wanted to go dinosaur hunting so equipped with hammers from the tool box we walked up the beach towards Lyme Regis in foul weather expecting their enthusiasm to soon dissipate. No such luck for , two hours later they had to be dragged off the beach, clutching small collections of fossils and stones of doubtful provenance. The whole... More

Visited the centre on a family holiday to Dorset last week. The centre was very interesting for both adults and children but the highlight of the day was the guided fossil walk. It started with a 20 minute talk on what we might find and how to find it safely. Phil was the tour leader and he was bright, engaging... More
