North Yorkshire's coastline is also known as ‘the Dinosaur Coast’, so whether you’re a beginner or an experienced fossil hunter, there is plenty to explore.

Organised fossil hunting trips are available, designed to show people how to go about fossil collecting in a safe and responsible manner, whilst directing you to the most exciting finds.

The Rotunda Museum is home to ‘Scarborough’s Lost Dinosaurs’ – an exhibition which brings together all the fossilised evidence for dinosaurs in the area throughout the Jurassic period. Come face-to-face with the dinosaurs themselves, see what they ate and experience the sounds they heard and the world they inhabited.
