Bracklesham fossil hunt dates Updated 19 January 2021
I no longer run public fossil hunts but will take bookings from organisations, societies,
families, individuals, etc. Please email me for more information. A charge (payable
in advance) will be made to cover costs, typically £35 to £50 depending on the size
of the group.
Weekend dates with better low tides that are currently available (subject to confirmation)
are listed below. Please ask about other dates.
February 2021 - Sat 27, Sun 28
March 2021 - Sat 13, Sun 14, Sat 27, Sun 28
April 2021 - Sat 24, Sun 25
August 2021 - Sun 22
Individuals may be able to join my trips that are run by other societies (fee usually
payable at the society rate). See my page on guided walks, contact the organisers
or myself for further information.
All trips are late afternoon to catch better low tides and last about 2 hours. This
gives more opportunity to see the fossil beds (if not buried beneath beach sand).
Please allow good time to arrive, traffic and parking can be difficult, especially
in the summer. The Bracklesham car park where we start is the same location as Billy’s
on the Beach cafe. Parking charges cease at 6.00pm, reduced charges apply for up
to 2 hours. Trips will not normally be cancelled for bad weather.
Meet at the slipway near the cafe. The beach is always colder than you expect - dress
appropriately with footwear that can get wet. Small collecting bags will be useful.
