Lyme Regis fossil shop.

Great shop to visit if you are fossil, stones or crystal lover. Shops is like a mini museum and shopkeepers are very friendly and informative.

When I was heading to the Museum I saw this shop on the other side of the road, I was amazed by the variety of the Fossils! And they are very cheap! You also can place orders by email or phone! Like I do now as I went on holiday there, and live 200+ miles away! Heh

The staff was very friendly. They have a wide variety of fossils, amber and amethyst. I found a rather large deep purple amethyst for a good price when comparing to the other fossil shops in the area. The gentleman that works there even hailed a cab for me in the rain. I also bought an ammonite for a good price.... More

If you appreciate natural history this shop has many strikingly beautiful examples of fossils, amber, and other life forms collected in and around the Jurassic Coast. For us, it was a wonderful place to shop for souvenirs to bring back to our children and grandchildren. To be sure, these treasures are different than the usual T-shirts with pictures of Stonehenge,... More

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.
