A French geological society visiting the Island; at Hanover Point looking for evidence of dinosaurs.Dinosaur Isle lead a number of guided walks at sites of known palaeontological and geological interest on the Isle of Wight.

These are advertized on our website. Please click on a month above (or scroll down) for the details of any trips that interest you.

Booking arrangements are detailed at the top of each month.

All guided walks must be pre-booked.

A general leaflet for the 2012 annual public fossil walk programme is still available for download by clicking on the pdf symbol. (File size 315 Kb). Site details remain the same today, however please check for current prices.Click here for a Fossil Walk leaflet.

About our guided trips and events

Please use the monthly menu above to navigate your way to the time of year you are interested in.

Additional trips are sometimes added nearer the time due to demand; details are then added to this webpage.  

For supplementary information on fossil walks please see the yellow box at the beginning of each month.

All of our beach walks take place on sand, and sometimes there are pools of water so please wear sensible footwear (wellingtons are a good idea in the winter).

Please note that past events are left advertized on this webpage to give an idea of what we do throughout the year.


Booking

ALL FOSSIL AND LANDSCAPE WALKS MUST BE PRE-BOOKED AND PAID. 

Discount vouchers apply only to museum admission and are not refundable against fossil walks.

The booking lists for fossil walks during Easter and the summer holidays are usually full two days prior to the walk so please book early enough to ensure a place.


Site access

Yaverland

A few minutes walk along the seawall from Dinosaur Isle, and then via a short flight of steps onto a sandy beach.

We have a beach wheelchair which is available for children during the Yaverland walks. The child must be capable of supporting their own back, and will need to be capable of walking or being carried down the short flight of steps between the carpark and the beach. Please let us know when you book the walk if you require the chair so that we can ensure that it is ready. Please visit our School field trip webpage for a picture of the chair at Yaverland.

Shanklin

The sandy and pebbly foreshore is reached by a wide concrete ramp. The beach is crossed by wooden groynes and so participants may need to step over these if the tide is higher than normal. Further on the beach can be covered by larger boulders, and there may be rockpools depending on the sand conditions on the day.

Brook Bay

Access is via a muddy path (during the winter, or after rain) with a cobbled surface onto a sandy beach. In places the beach is crossed by sandy ridges and those who take part may need to step over these. The shore platform can be slippery and wet so wellingtons with good grip are advisable.

Compton Bay

This beach is accessed by a flight of wooden steps and a final set of steep metal steps. The surface is mainly sandy, but underneath can be muddy and there are often wet pools or streams to cross. Wellingtons with good grip are advisable.

Ventnor Geowalk

This takes place along steep paths and steps so is not suitable for buggies or wheelchairs. Due to the unguarded nature of some edges this walk is for adults and teenagers only, with dogs on leads please.
