Details

Your fossil walk ticket gives you FREE access to the museum where you will be able to see displays of rare fossils, learn all about Mary Anning, the famous early palaeontologist who once lived on the site of the museum and much, much more.

Some families return time and again to search with Paddy and Chris among the sand and rocks for fossils that have been washed-down onto the beach after 150 million years. For adults and children alike, it’s an unforgettable experience.

Walks leave promptly from outside the museum. Please arrive 10 minutes before departure time. The walk is over uneven ground on the beach to the East of Lyme. You'll need to be reasonably agile and steady on your feet and should wear walking books or wellies and suitable clothing and headgear for the weather. We advise bringing a rucksack so you can collect fossils and remain hands-free. Bring a drink and snack. If you are bringing children under 8, we advise that they should have a particular interest in fossils and a good attention span!

Please note that walks always go ahead, whatever the weather, unless it is unsafe to do so.
