You've seen the virtual versions, now come and visit the real thing - Warwickshire Museum looks after all of the fossils featured in the "Jurassic Fishcake." You can visit many of them in the Geology Gallery at the Market Hall site in Warwick. See the website for opening hours and contact details.

Many of the fossils were found in quarries. Quarry sites can be dangerous, and there are few still working, but the county's Heritage Education team runs supervised fossil hunting trips to Cross Hands Quarry each summer. See their website for details.

Southern Warwickshire is a real "Jurassic Fishcake" landscape. One of the best places for fossil hunting and viewing the landscape is Burton Dassett Hills Country Park.

If you fancy a trip further afield, try the Natural History Museum in London.
