Fossil sites in London area

The Amateur Paleontologist

Hey all :) 

 

Next year I'll be beginning university, and I'll probably be in London, UK. Would some of you know of any fossil sites in the area around London? I'd be fine with anywhere less than an hour and a half by bus or train...

 

Thanks for the help!

I’m probably not much help but I know 2.5 hours will get you to Lyme Regis which is an extra hour of commute time though. 

Maybe this will help get you started?

And I'm sure that this can be of help.

The Thames?

It's full of recent, to medieval times, to all the way back to Pleistocene stuff.

 

I found a rib there once that I'm pretty sure is from a crocodile that was likely housed in the zoo at the Tower of London back in medieval times.
