Wondering where is best to hunt for fossils on the Jurassic Coast?
This part of the Jurassic coastline erodes rapidly resulting in thousands of fossils being fed onto the beaches from the landslides in the surrounding cliffs, especially after winter storms.
The remains that have been found here since the eighteenth century represent one of the richest slices of life in Jurassic times anywhere in the world!
Just east of Lulworth Cove is the extraordinary ancient fossil forest and in this area dinosaur footprints and trackways have been discovered.
Fossils are eroded from the cliffs of the World Heritage Site and tumble onto the beaches where we can find them. But not every beach is safe, and not all fossils should be collected.
Always follow the Fossil Hunting Code before setting out on your hunt.
It's very important that you also consult tide tables before collecting fossils; it is advisable that you hunt for fossils on a falling tide.
