February Fossil Festival

Distance from the centre of Kingsbridge: 16.6 miles
Torquay's Dinosaur World

Open every day from 11am – last entry 3pm – close at 5pm

Escape the winter weather during February half term and visit Torquay’s Dinosaur World to take part in our fabulous February Fossil Festival. Future palaeontologists can practice their excavation skills in our very own excavation sites to uncover and identify a variety of exciting different fossils. 

Brave explorers can get up close and personal with dinosaurs: sit on a baby Triceratops or a full size Deinonychus, and even put head inside the jaw of a fossilised T-Rex skull. You can also win a Dinosaur Expert Certificate and a bag of FREE fossils with our special Fossil Festival Quiz.  

Every day from 3pm we will hold a FREE workshop about fossils, including a talk and demonstration, fossil crafts such as making your own fossils to take home, and the chance to help build a scale replica fossil of the mighty king of dinosaurs – Tyrannosaurus Rex. Customers who visit earlier in the day can return free of charge, or you can time your visit for the afternoon and stay in the exhibition for the workshop.  

Our entry price is still only £5.95 per visitor and you get FREE unlimited re-entry for 3 months. PLUS get 1/2 price entry to Kent’s Cavern* during the half term school holidays. (*See our website for T&Cs). Now that’s going to banish the winter blues!
