One of the oldest and we think best fossil shops in Europe with a massive range of pocket money items right up to Museum grade collector pieces. Huge selection of semi precious stone jewellery and Baltic amber is a speciality. Local Fossils as well as rare fossils from around the world. Free entry

A very impressive shop absolutely full of fossil displays and fossils for sale. Seemed a bit expensive though compared to other shops but the fossils are good quality.

Stumbled across this and as well as being somewhere you can purchase anything fossil related there are also lots of different fossils from the local area on display like a mini museum!!
