  • Great shop if you are into rocks, fossils etc. There is even a rock pit that kids (and big kids) can get into and pick their rocks to buy (fill a bag). Our kids love it and we always pay a visit each time we are in Ambleside, however the prices seem to have climbed to an extortionate cost meaning we give the place a miss now. Shame. They have some dinosaur fossils etc upstairs to see, but are now charging to go upstairs when previously that was free to see.
  • Good for kids of all ages, I took my 3 year old he was not allowed upstairs in the exhibition I think they have to be minimum 5 but he went in the rock pool to collect gems and loved it
  • A pretty sizeable selection of fossils and other gemstones with some hard to find types too. Of course it's not Ebay prices but this is the middle of the Lake District and is pretty well priced, plus you get to see the actual specimen. Worth a visit if you're looking for anything gem related.
  • Love the uniqueness and the gem pit is amazing! x
  • Interesting to know formations and colours
