Pocket Guide: Newport Dinosaur Expeditions Conservation and Palaeoart Centre Hotels

The dramatic landscapes of the Isle of Wight are largely responsible for its status as one of the United Kingdom's premier holiday destinations. The Isle of Wight's ample natural beauty creates a timeless atmosphere, which is ideal for discovering the wealth of dinosaur remains and fossils that lie on the island. The Dinosaur Expeditions Conservation and Palaeoart Centre is a unique attraction that encourages visitors to do exactly that. The Centre is based near Brighstone, meaning there are plenty of excellent hotels in the area.

A Dino Hotspot

It's well known that the Isle of Wight was something of a hotspot for dinosaurs. Today, it's considered one of the best places in Europe to discover dinosaur fossils. Recognising that fossils represent a finite resource, a number of local fossil enthusiasts endeavoured to set up the Dinosaur Expeditions Conservation and Palaeoart Centre in 2013. The centre houses a variety of fossilised species, including Sauropods, Theropods and even part of a rare Polacanthus.

Palaeoart Exhibitions

The Centre features a permanent exhibition of Palaeoart, which helps visitors understand and interpret the fossils they find. The collection ranges from painting to sculpture and is an artistically fascinating exhibition in its own right. The Centre also offers a range of kids' activities and a gift shop.

Fossil Expeditions

Fossils may be a finite resource, but the good news is there's plenty still to be found on the Isle of Wight. The Dinosaur Expeditions Conservation and Palaeoart Centre holds regular trips to several locations on the island, with the aim of encouraging visitors to find their own dinosaur fossils. All expeditions are led by a professional guide, and visitors are able to keep their finds!

Hotels near the Expedition Centre

The Dinosaur Farm, where the Centre is located, is on the south coast, not far from Brighstone. This means that visitors have plenty of local hotels, guesthouses and B&Bs to choose from.

Many of the best guesthouses and hotels on the Isle of Wight are located to the west, close to the Needles. Further to the east, the Victorian seaside town of Ventnor is packed with exquisite hotels. Alternatively, visitors can stay in Newport, close to the centre of the island - ideal for exploring all corners of the Isle of Wight.
