Charmouth Heritage Coast Centre

Charmouth Heritage Coast Centre

The Charmouth Heritage Coast Centre is home to an amazing fossil collection. You’ll learn how to look for your own fossils along the beaches, how to identify what you’ve found and there are even fossil hunting walks the whole family can join in with.

Meet the Charmouth Dinosaur, clamber around rockpools, and join the team on a plankton hunting expedition. The centre offers plenty to do year round and is a great educational experience for all ages.

For more information on events, collections on display and the latest goings on at the centre, visit the official website.
