Fossil Hunting Along the Jurassic Coast

The Jurassic Coast is a World Heritage Site on the southern coast of England. The Jurassic Coast stretches from Exmouth in East Devon to Studland Bay in Dorset, across 95 stunning miles of coastline. This region was designated as England’s first natural World Heritage Site in 2001. The layers of rocks along the coastline reveal the history of the region through multiple periods including the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous periods. The Jurassic Coast is one of the world’s best places to explore rocks and witness real-life fossils!
