Come and look for dinosaur footprints, fossil shells, shark and fish teeth, ammonites and fossil plants. They can supply all the equipment you need (hammers, chisels, safety glasses etc) to find and collect fossils for you to take home.
At present, they offer family trips to Hastings and Eastbourne (Sussex) and Folkestone, Samphire Hoe and Reculver (Kent). But please do check their website through the link for an expanding list of fossil hunting sites.
The tours are suitable for small parties, groups, birthday parties and birthday treats. If you wish them to participate in a birthday party event, please contact to discuss your needs. They cater for people with all levels of experience.
