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.

(Last year's walks in 2018)
In the menu some months at the end of the year are highlighted in ORANGE, these are events that took place last year and will be progressively replaced as we plan 2019.

If you attended one of our walks in 2018, or were interested in one we ran, and would like us to run something similar in the future; or you are a member of a society and would like us to explore the possibility of a customized walk for you (depending on staffing and access etc) then please let us know.



2019
Walks and events for later in 2019 are being planned. Additional walks may be added due to extra demand, or for special events. 2019 months are highlighted in BLUE in the menu.

Please note that walks at certain times of the year can be fully booked a few days before they take place so we cannot guarantee there will be room on the day unless you are booked. Walks during the school holidays at Easter, the summer holiday and over Christmas are very popular and need to be booked in advance. All of our walks must be pre-booked by contacting us before the walk.

We welcome sharing of our events on social media, but would ask that those who post our events on other media please include our booking and pre-payment requirements clearly in the posts. We supply down-loadable posters in pdf format for some events.


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, Christmas 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.

Due to recent land movement the main steps have been closed and a set of temporary wooden steps are in place.

Ventnor Geowalk

We sometimes run a coastal walk in Ventnor.  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.


Fossil Walks - Frequently asked questions

1. Can we take our dog on one of your walks?
Yes; as long as it is under control.

2. Is the walk suitable for buggies?
In general Yes; but Yaverland has a short flight of narrow steps, Shanklin has wooden groynes, and Brook has a bumpy path so be prepared for a bit of an adventure at times! The smaller the buggy, and the lighter it is the easier it will be to push it on the sand. Where a walk is likely to be unsuitable for small-wheeled buggies we will state this on the advertising.

3. How long does a walk last?
It varies; we try to allow at least one and a half hours on site, but if there are a lot of finds we can be there for two. We don't ask you to stay if you need to leave (and very young childen sometimes find an hour is enough for them). The Brook walk typically lasts for two hours because of the need to return to the starting car-park; and in the summer the possible stop at the ice-cream van.

4. Why do I need to book and pre-pay?
Our walks are popular and can fill up quickly, and we need to make sure that we have enough space to give everyone who wants to go a fair chance of getting on them.  We limit the numbers on our walks to ensure that the guide can engage with all of our visitors during the walk, and ensure that you have the best opportunity to ask questions.

5. Should we bring any tools?
No; please don't. We only look for loose fossils on the beach so there isn't any need for hammers or shovels. But children should bring along a strong plastic bag or small bucket to carry finds in.

6. What happens if the trip is cancelled?
We reserve the right to cancel a trip due to bad weather etc. In this event we will offer you a walk on an alternative date. If this is not acceptable we will offer a refund.

If you need to cancel a walk you have booked please let us know.  Subject to availability we will move you to another day/time.
