Is this suitable is the fossil walk for a toddler? he is a strong walker 16 months old?
how late in the day is it better to find fossils?
The guided fossil walks are for all ages and we walk for 5-10 minutes down the beach before we start our search. We take our time so there is no rush to keep up with everyone else.
The time of day for fossil hunting depends on the tide. We need a low tide to find the fossils and this changes by approximately 40 minutes a day, so some of our fossil walks are in the morning, some across lunch and some during the afternoon. It is best to check our website calendar for all dates and times. We can also give you the daily tide times here at the centre.
Most of our public guided walks take place on the weekends and during school holidays, with schools visiting Monday-Friday during term time.
Hi. I wouldnt say its difficult for a toddler on this beach.
We didnt find any fossils while we were here but the heritage centre (next to charmouth beach) will answer all your fossil hunting questions. They hire out hammers too. They also sell little books with fossil hunting guidance.
Hope this helps.
