Fossil Grove is situated within Victoria Park in the Whiteinch area of Glasgow. Strathclyde Geoconservation Group has prepared a leaflet describing the geology of the site and the Geological Society of Glasgow has published a more detailed excursion itinerary. More information about the site can be found on the Fossil Grove website.

Because of the Covid-19 restrictions, the Fossil House will not be open to the public during 2020. The outdoor parts of the site continue to be open all the year round.
