Herne Bay Fossil Finding
Kent
Herne Bay is undoubtedly one of the most highly productive places for fossil finding in the county. Most of the fossils are found during the extreme low tidal conditions which occur twice a year, but fossils can generally be found during low tide washed up on the shore or within the shingle. This location is ideal for children, who generally love to splash about in the sea and some back with pockets full of finds! The bay is easy to find and easy to access, with parking is very close by and of course for food, drink and toilets, the town center is less than a mile away. Although this is a hands and knees location, it is a great way t spend a sunny afternoon, and good fun for all the family, as long as you don’t mind getting a bit soggy!
