"Fossil Hunting in Kimmeridge" Kimmeridge by ettiewyn

Kimmeridge Travel Guide: 46 reviews and 90 photos

I had planned to go fossil hunting in Lyme Regis, but had a chance a few days earlier when we stopped in Kimmeridge during a guided tour to the Jurassic Coast. I tried my luck and was quite successful - but more about that in my tips :-)

We did not visit the village of Kimmeridge, but only Kimmeridge Bay. I had never heard about this place before (I had booked the tour because of a few other places that were on the itinerary), and was happy to see that it was such a lovely place. The blue sea, the pebble beach, and some lovely cliffs and green fields close by... It was very idyllic. There were also many surfers who stayed here in vans, which added some kind of hippie feel to the place.

If you are in the area and want to find some fossils, Kimmeridge is certainly worth a visit!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:A lovely spot, and it is really possible to find many fossils here!
  • Cons:Not good if you have walking difficulties, due to the rocks and pebbles
  • In a nutshell:I am happy I came here and brought back some nice fossils :-)

    Lovely little page, Mirjam. I have never heard of Kimmeridge but I have been fossil hunting at Lyme Regis. I had limited success though, especially compared to you! :D
