We were on a short break to Lyme Regis and joined a small group for the fossil trip along the beach. It was absolutely fascinating. A brilliant job well done by Paddy Howe. I would recommend this trip for anybody.

A fascinating place to see interesting fossils. We previously tried our luck with fossil hunting to no avail. Here you can get what you cannot hunt. Staff were all knowledgeable and engaging.
