Isle of Wight
Discover, Experience and Encounter – Dinosaur Isle is the first purpose built dinosaur attraction in the country where a walk back through geological time takes you to the lost world of the dinosaurs a 120 million years ago. Discover the skeletal remains as they are found by fossil hunters, encounter our palaeontologists working on the latest finds, experience the sounds and smells the dinosaurs may have encountered. You will meet in the flesh the isle of Wight’s famous five dinosaurs Neovenator, Eotyrannus, Iguanadon, Hypsilophodon and the giant Sauropod and even the building is shaped as a giant pterosaur which mastered the Cretaceous skies.
