Just to let readers know The Fossil Workshop is closed/no-longer-in-business. I recommend the Fossil Walks provided by Paddy Howe at the Lyme Regis Museum.

We were on a short break to Lyme Regis and joined a small group for the fossil trip along the beach. It was absolutely fascinating. A brilliant job well done by Paddy Howe. I would recommend this trip for anybody.

Interesting fossils and knowledgeable staff

A fascinating place to see interesting fossils. We previously tried our luck with fossil hunting to no avail. Here you can get what you cannot hunt. Staff were all knowledgeable and engaging.

Paddy is no fossil!

What an amazing experience - great introduction to fossils by Paddy Howe, who has been in this area of interest for 45 years. Does he know his 'stuff'? Damn right he does. After a full chat and showing us samples of what has been found, he helped us find our own fossils. Would certainly do this again. Thank you so much, Paddy, for a very informative few hours on the beach.

Absolutely brilliant bloke, fab fossil walk

Im usually full of descriptive stuff about what was good and bad on reviews. With Paddy, he is simply awesome. Book a walk through Lyme Regis Museum with him and you cannot fail to be impressed no matter what age you are or level of knowledge. Just go, learn and enjoy.

A lovely man, with time to explain his passion
Aug 2016 • Family
Our 7 year old son asked if he could take a look in here, and what a gem we found! The owner of this workshop was very down to earth and took time to explain and share his passion for fossil hunting. Lots of amazing fossil discoveries to see and absolutely no pressure to buy anything. He has definitely ignited an interest for us to see what we can find on the coasts around our home.

Paddy Rocks!
Jun 2016 • Family
Paddy's Fossil Walk was the highlight of our two week trip along the SWCP. He and Tom were wonderful and answered all of our stupid questions. My teen loved it and them, especially Tom. They talked to him and not down to him. It was a great experience from start to finish.
