Fossils collected on the beach at Charmouth

Join one of Charmouth Heritage Centre’s guided Fossil Walks with the Wardens to find and take home your own Jurassic fossil!

This two hour session starts up at the Centre with a 20 minute talk from the Centre Warden about the fossils of Charmouth and how to find fossils on the beach. The group then heads out onto Charmouth beach with the wardens and spend the rest of the session looking for fossils.

The Centre has a high ratio of Wardens to members of the public on every walk. During school holidays booking is essential and we advise that you arrive 10 minutes before the walk is scheduled to start to pick up your tickets.

Times for the walks vary according to the tides. Click here to book onto a walk.
