The weather has not stopped us enjoying our day! (It was wet and windy with a few period of sunshine). Chris and Paddy's walk was educational, informative BUT not boring. No questions were left unanswered. Highly highly recommend.

This was fantastic. We went with our 8 and 12 year old daughters for a 3 hour guided walk and brought home pockets full of fossils we found. The guides were fantastic.More

First of all this is not just a fossil walk. If you are considering one of the many walks then go no further than Paddy Howe's team. Paddy is the best guide we have every encountered. He should be the focus of the fossil festival...More

An excellent little museum that has a great collection of local history including some good fossils. Entry is a little pricey but worth it.

We added a day on to our summer holiday on Devon specifically to visit Lyme Regis on the Jurassic Coast. I thought that the museum had some good exhibits but it was very small and cramped and a bit pricey for what it was.More
