The Jurassic Coast is famous the world over for fossils. Fossil hunting and collecting is a tradition that goes back centuries in the area around Lyme Regis and it is considered part of the heritage of the Jurassic Coast. You can even try fossil collecting for yourself here. We recommend joining a guided fossil hunting walk from either the Charmouth Heritage Coast Centre or Lyme Regis Museum.
