Private Hire Tours - Robin Hoods Bay



A facilitated tour with one of our professional guides is the best way to discover the classic geoheritage location of Robin Hoods Bay. Tailored itineraries are arranged to suit the objectives of any group wanting a bespoke fossil-hunting experience.

Our Earth Scientist guides curate individually designed tours that follow best practice in accessing sites for responsible fossil collecting in this protected SSSI location. Private tours consider the unique safety factors of the location and are arranged to suit tides, adventure level, age and ability of the hiring party.

Each tour explores the processes that have created the unique landforms of Robin Hoods Bay and uncovers the environment and ecosystems that existed in Jurassic and Ice Age times. We discover the rocks and fossils that form the science behind these ancient stories.

Summer availability is extremely limited. Please book early for Autumn and 2025 dates
