The Dinosaur Discovery Trail


Created to celebrate Walk to School Week (21-25 May 2018), the Dinosaur Discovery Trail is an incentive that encourages families in the borough to get out and about exploring their local area on foot, while searching for dinosaurs hidden in different locations.


This year we’re running the trail from 14 to 27 May to give people two whole weeks to find dinosaurs, so grab a map or download it from the RBKC website and get out and about exploring the borough over the next two weeks. The trail may be designed to encourage walking, but there’s no reason why you can’t cycle form dinosaur to dinosaur and find even more of them.


How do I take part?
Use the map to find the dinosaurs with your family and friends. You can download the official adventure map and view it on your smartphone or print a copy:

You can also use the Google map.


Paper maps can be found in libraries in the borough, the Ecology Centre in Holland Park, the Portobello and Golborne Street Trading Office, and the Chelsea Theatre.


Win prizes!


Everyone who takes part and returns their completed maps to us will get a dinosaur badge and be entered into a draw for three runner-up prizes, and if you manage to visit all dinosaur locations you could even win a scooter!


All you have to do is:

Find at least five dinosaurs during the two weeks of 14-27 May 2018 using the map


Answer the questions about them (the answers can be found at the locations)


Send your answers back to us:

Drop your completed maps into the boxes provided at participating schools and local libraries (remember to fill out your contact details so we know where to send the badges)
