Fossil Hunting

The coastal beaches and quarries of Yorkshire have long been a gold mine for fossil hunters, with amazing specimens being found right out in plain sight.

Sandsend and Runswick Bay are the cream of the crop but just about anywhere could turn up something quite special.

We have tried to cater for a broad spectrum of interests, but if what you love doing is not on the list or you need more details, do not worry, you can email us to ask specific questions regarding local activities and sights at:
