Guided Fossil Hunting Walks

The Jurassic coast is the most popular place in Britain to collect fossils. The best way to experience the Jurassic Coast is on a guided fossil hunting expedition. Book a guided fossil walk and you will learn about the geological history and fossils of the world famous coastline.


We have years of experience and can show you the best places to (hopefully) find some amazing pieces.  

We can tailor a guided walk to your group’s specific needs and structure a fossil hunting expedition of interest to all ages.

Fossil Hunting

Private fossil hunting expeditions are for people who do not wish to go with large groups. We can devote more time to customise the fossil hunting to your interests. If you are staying at a hotel or accommodation near the beach we can meet you at your accommodation. We are also able to arrange to meet you at a cafe or restaurant to give a brief pre-talk about the fossils before going on the beach.

Large Groups

If you have a large group who require a fossil hunting tour then the more information you can provide, the greater we can structure the fossil hunting to meet your needs. In recent years we have taken Graduate groups, Rambling Groups, Secondary School students, Language Schools, Hen Parties, Corporate Days Out and Birthday Parties. We need to know the number in the group, dates and time.

Our Walk Locations


There are three large car parks at Charmouth. I meet outside The Charmouth Heritage. In the Heritage Centre is a free entry display about the Jurassic Coast.  There are two cafes and a local fossil shop and toilet facilities. Lots of parking

Lyme Regis

For walks In Lyme Regis, the fossil walks start at the “old sea anchor” monument at the bottom of the town, next to the town clock.

I can also meet you at either the Pilot Boat or The Lyme Bay which are both near-by at the bottom of the town. You can have a coffee while I give an initial talk about the fossils .

Payment Methods

Due to problems with card payments and lack of internet at the walk locations, we request that you pay on the day by cash. This helps, as on the rare occasion when we need to cancel (normally due to extreme weather), there is no need to process a refund.  Advanced payment by card can be made if required. If you wish to pay in advance let me know and I can send an invoice for payment by cards.
