Dinosaurs in Fleet

Fleet's Summer Dinosaur Takeover

The Dinosaurs are coming to Fleet this summer with four fun family activities to keep you entertained until the schools go back.

Three Enormous Dinosaur Selfie Stars!

Have you ever dreamt of taking a selfie with dinosaurs? Well, dream no more because we’ve got not one, but THREE giant dinosaurs waiting for you! First up, we have the majestic Triceratops, with its impressive three horns and intimidating frill. Get your cameras ready to capture this prehistoric beauty!

Next, meet the adorable Baby Brontosaurus, a tiny version of its colossal parents. Snap a selfie with this cute dino and witness the magic of the past come alive in the present. And last but not least, brace yourself for the speedy and cunning Velociraptor. Don’t worry; it’s not as dangerous as it sounds – but it sure makes for an exciting selfie opportunity!

Don’t forget to share your dino-selfies with the world using the hashtag #DinosInFleet. Let’s make social media roar with our prehistoric memories!


These giant dinos can be found by 

  • Pedal Heaven (311 Fleet Road)
  • Sainsbury’s (116 Fleet Road) 
  • Mackenzie Smith (94 Fleet Road).
