Dinosaur Attractions

Dinosaur Isle of Wight

The Isle of Wight is regarded as one of the richest areas for Dinosaur discovery in Europe, which has already earned it the title “Dinosaur Island”. In addition to that it was named the UK’s Dinosaur Capital as part of a new Dinosaur Map of Britain, which was compiled by Dr Paul Barrett, Merit Researcher from the Natural History Museum! 

There is a great range of dinosaur attractions and activities available on the Isle of Wight, with some fantastic opportunities for dinosaur and fossil enthusiasts. These include musuems such as the award winning Dinosaur Isle, fossil hunts with experts such as Dinosaur Fossil Hunts and Footprint Tours, and also beaches such as Brook where you can discover your own fossils!

Try the all new Dinosaur Experience at Blackgang Chine, the first of it's kind in the UK, with your chance to get "up close and personal" with two baby Tyrannosaurus Rex flanked by their trained handlers.

2013 is also the Island’s Year of the Dinosaur, with over 40 special dinosaur events, dinosaur appearances and fossil hunts taking place across the Isle of Wight. Don't miss our incredible walking with dinosaurs augmented reality app and enter our online competition to WIN two free tickets to the Walking with Dinosaurs movie premiere!
