you need good informative team when you are out on a Jurassic era coast.. and we got the right information. Although couldn't spend enough time but 4 hours well spent on the beach hunting fossils (didn't find any) but center and staff were awesome.

We visited for the fossil hunting tour and we're not disappointed.

A great knowledgeable team took us through the history of the area and various fossils and techniques for finding them in the centre before heading out to the beach.

We found a few different types thanks to the lessons and all the family had a great afternoon out

Our family enjoyed an excellent fossil walk/hunt under the expert guidance of Phil and the team. The staff were great with the kids and so enthusiastic which was contagious. After our session, we all now feel empowered with the basic knowledge the find more fossils on our own and to understand what they may be. Definitely worth doing.

Great way to spend a few hours hunting for fossils of which there are plenty. The Heritage centre had some fantastic specimens and was very informative

We started our day with a trip to the cafe by the Heritage Centre. Lovely staff and a good range of food. The fossil shop next door is very reasonable and better value than the shops in local villages. My two children took part in fossil polishing at the Heritage Cente. It took about 15 minutes and they cane away with a lovely shiny fossil! The staff were very enthusiastic, friendly and helpful.
