It's time to dig out your magnifying glass and join us at intu Uxbridge where as part of National Fossil Day, we're giving customers the chance to go on a fossil hunting adventure in centre!
Once you've collected your mission kit from guest services, you can begin your hunt on Wednesday 12 October between 1-4pm.
Uncover the history of intu Uxbridge by closely examining our stone tiles which originally belonged to an ancient sea floor over 180 million years ago - wow! As you walk across our floor, there'll be a little piece of history right under your very own feet! If you look even closer at the ground on our lower mall flooring, the best explorers will find traces of ancient fossils!
If you would like to join in more with our activities for Fossil Day, come along to our 30 minute tours at 3:15pm, 3:50pm and 4:25pm.
Each jam-packed tour includes:
- Meet and greet with Frankie Fossil
- Fossil Packs
- The History of Fossils
- Briefing on the Different Types of Fossils to Find
- 10 Minute Fossil Hunt for Families and Children
- A Discussion of Everyone's Findings
- Certificates and Fossil Colouring
There is 15-20 children per session, and you can reserve your space at Guest Services. For those of you keen explorers, you can collect your mission kit now at Guest Services too in preparation for your big excavation on the day!
We can’t wait to see you in centre. See you soon!
