My eldest boy enjoyed this shop as he couldn't find any fossils on the beach so we had to buy him some.

A lovely shop in Lyme Regis full of a variety of fossils. The staff were very friendly and even helped us to identify some fossils we found on the beach. Well worth a look if you are in the area.

Despite being quite a small shop, the Fossil Shop has tons to see. I was very impressed by the range and quality of the fossils that were found in Lyme Regis or other locations on the Jurassic Coast. They also have a selection of other non-local fossils and a collection of gemstones from around the world. And the best part, everything is for sale! And if you would prefer to hunt for your own fossils on the Jurassic coast, the Fossil Shop sells a range of rock hammers.

Not only interesting to visit as a tourist attraction, however, more so if you want to learn more about history and science. Really great shop to spend over an hour just checking out the fossils and admiring the gems.

This is such a good place to visit. Out little grandsons loved it. They learnt about geology, social history, geography and much more and went home with some exciting 'finds'. Tricky parking with a hilly walk. Tools of the trade on sale and there are fossils to see on the beach nearby. Have fun.
