We enjoyed the talk and walk with Chris. He made it easier to recognise and find fossils as well as being funny and patient with the children. For the price, it was really worthwhile. Yes, we found some nice fossils, as well!

We really enjoyed a group fossil walk with Chris. He's a mine of information and we came away with plenty of finds that we would never have spotted without his tips. Our 5 & 3 year olds also had a great morning!
