4 of us (2 adults and 2 children) joined a small group who went on this trip on a Friday morning. We had seen it advertised on a poster in the shop earlier in the week. Byron, the shop owner who led the trip, was very knowledgable and led us up the abbey steps along the top of the cliff edge and down to the small bay along the cost. He gave us a very informative talk on how to safely search for fossils and what to look out for. We then started our hunt. We all thoroughly enjoyed searching the beach and pebbles and found quite a few good specimens. We walked along the shoreline seeing dinosaur footprints and a fossil graveyard. The scenery was amazing and we had a brilliant time. We would definitely go again the next time we are in Whitby.

I stumbled across this activity when I wandered into the quite wonderful Natural Wonders store on Grape Lane, and found out there was a space with a group going out the next morning. The group of adults and children walked out to the beach with our most helpful and knowledgeable guide and spent a lovely morning learning about the geology and fossils, what to look for and what we were seeing. It was an altogether memorable walk on the beach and I have the ammonites I found to remember it by. Highly recommended.
