Attraction details
Owner description: One of the oldest and we think best fossil shops in Europe with a massive range of pocket money items right up to Museum grade collector pieces. Huge selection of semi precious stone jewellery and Baltic amber is a speciality. Local Fossils as well as rare fossils from around the world. Free entry

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, everything is for sale! And if you would prefer to hunt for your own fossils on the Jurassic coast, the Fossil Shop sells a range of rock hammers.

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, this venue has a well informed staff who are willing to help younsters who have just made an exciting find on the beach help indentify it. Despite a queue, the assistant patiently helped my eight year old identify a bag of small fossils he found on the beach-and made him feel very pleased with his find.

Whilst the products are expensive-the service is superb and the local knowledge outstanding.
