Lyme Fossil Shop

4 Bridge Street, Lyme Regis DT7 3QA

An Aladdin’s cave of fossils, gemstones and all things geological, this warren of a shop is a long-established Lyme favourite. Inside you can browse the huge collection of fossils, minerals, petrified wood, crystals, meteorites and sea shells from the local area and further afield. Particularly impressive is the amber, with hapless insects enclosed in the stone, and the Portland Titanites Gigantus – allegedly the largest ammonite in the world. There’s also a tiny underground museum, where you can see fossils of an ichthyosaur and more ammonites. Prices for the geological oddities range from 99p to £1500, but it’s free to come and browse.
