Each year during the Christmas holidays Dinosaur Isle leads a guided walk to look for fossils from the time of the dinosaurs. This year it will be at Yaverland on Wednesday 27th of December, starting at Dinosaur Isle 10 am.

The Christmas fossil walk has become a popular tradition with some families, and with good weather it attracts a lot of visitors.

This walk provides an opportunity to look for fossils from our eroding coastline, and to walk off all that Christmas turkey. Wrap up warm and bring wellingtons. Bring a small plastic bucket or strong plastic bag for children to collect fossils.
