Where to see Dinosaurs in the North East

There is no hiding from the fact that Dinosaurs are super popular right now. Over the last couple of years they have been all the rage. 2022 saw a massive increase in Dino related events and that looks set to continue in 2023. We have always been big dinosaur fans and have seen quite a few over the years. It is just so fascinating to think that these huge animals once lived on this very planet.

I have tried to find as many places in the North East as possible, with some a bit further out and added an event section too, which I will update throughout the year.
