Welcome Back! From the 4th July 2020 we are reopening for fossil walks!

However, there are key changes to the way we operate; to maximise safety this summer we are running PRIVATE WALKS ONLY. Our public walks will NOT be running during the 2020 season. Our private walks can be booked at 4 different sites where social distancing is easiest to maintain:

Shanklin

Compton Bay

Grange Chine

Thorness Bay

For more information please see our COVID-19 page!  

Established by local Island fossil hunters, Theo Vickers, Jack Wonfor and Megan Jacobs, Wight Coast Fossils aims to share, preserve and protect the stunning and unique geological heritage that the Isle of Wight has to offer! From the bones of gigantic dinosaurs to beautifully preserved ammonites, the rich and world-famous fossils of the Isle of Wight tell a dramatic story of an Island 130 million years in the making!

As of spring 2019, we are expanding our venture to give you the chance to come face to face with our ancient prehistoric past! Get out into the field on our stunning Island coastline and take a step back in time on our guided fossil walks, learning about and discovering your very own piece of prehistory!
