Details

The Yorkshire Coast is famous all over the world for it’s amazing fossils and geology, join the experts from Hidden Horizons for a unique break to see the evidence for yourself and collect your own fossils dating back to 200 million years old.

The Hidden Horizons team is led by geologist Will Watts, who has over 15 years experience of living and working on the coastline. Will has worked with all the local museums, many universities and has led probably thousands of people on walks and fossil hunting trips. In addition to Will your trip will be led by a team including authors, academics and local fossil collectors to give you a unique experience.

The holiday will include visits to classic outdoor localities such as Runswick Bay, Saltwick Bay, Robin Hoods Bay, Burniston and Scalby Bays, plus Scarborough Castle Headland, Filey Brigg and many others.

As our trips are tide dependant we may also include visits to local museums and other inland venues. By the time you finish your holiday you will have seen the full range of geology the Yorkshire Coast has to offer, including the world famous Jurassic dinosaur footprints.
