Take a step back in time…

At Wight Coast Fossils we offer award winning public and private guided fossil hunting experiences on the stunning UNESCO biosphere coastline of the Isle of Wight! One of the best places on Earth to come face to face with the ancient past, the Isle of Wight has a rich fossil record spanning 130 million years, from the dinosaurs of the Early Cretaceous to the freezing tundra of the last Ice Age!

Our fossil walks have something for fossil hunters of all ages, abilities and interests! Hunt for fossils at stunning sites around the island with our guides, explore the ancient story of the Isle of Wight and discover your own piece of our world-famous prehistoric past!

Our new Clothing line!

We’ve been working hard to produce a series of unique palaeontological and geological designs for our own clothing line! These are all made by our team members and feature aspects of our island’s palaeontology!

We’ve chosen to sell these via Teemill. Teemill is part of Rapanui Clothing, an Isle of Wight-based company, specializing in sustainable, natural, and organic clothing! All products are made using natural materials and renewable energy, as well as delivered in plastic-free packaging!


Our fossil walk gift vouchers are now available to purchase! A perfect gift for avid fossil hunters or simply for family or friends visiting the stunning Isle of Wight!
