Join an experienced team at the Charmouth Heritage Coast Centre for a guided fossil hunting walk and fun activities for all the family.  At the Centre, marvel at fossil collections, meet the Charmouth Dinosaur and find out about the past and present of this incredible World Heritage Coastline.  

You’ll now be itching to make your own fossil discovery  - maybe an Ammonite, a Belemnite, a Crinoid or even a dinosaur tooth – who knows what you'll uncover as you comb Charmouth Beach.  A guided fossil hunting walk starts with a talk about the fossils of Charmouth and tips and hints on the best ways to find them.  It’s then down to you, with a little help from the wardens, to see what prehistoric discoveries your family can make.

Afterwards, review your finds and relax with a well deserved pub meal or picnic on the beach.
