About the team

Will Watts

Founder and Director of Hidden Horizons, Will has lived and worked in Scarborough for over 12 years, firstly as Dinosaur Coast Project Officer with Scarborough Borough Council and then from 2008 to 2013 as Head of Public Programmes with Scarborough Museums Trust. During his time in Scarborough he has been involved with many of the major developments associated with the museums and in particular the Rotunda Museum and all things geological.  He played a leading role in the £4.5million re-development of the Rotunda which re-opened in 2008 to critical and public acclaim. He also played a senior role at Scarborough Museums Trust leading the marketing, learning and visitor services teams and delivering many successful funding bids and exhibition projects.

His experience with the Dinosaur Coast makes him an accomplished leader of walks and outdoor events as well as being equally at home in the classroom, especially when enthusing about his first love, geology and dinosaurs. Prior to working in Scarborough he was employed by the Yorkshire Museum in York and the Royal Ontario Museum, Canada.  Raised in the North York Moors National Park, before studying geology at Leeds University he has over 15 years experience of working in museums, starting as a teenage volunteer at the award winning Ryedale Folk Museum in Hutton-le-Hole.

  1. Hi
    my family and I went on the rock pooling walk/talk and thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. We had a 3 year old with us who spent 2 hours investigating the rock pools and finding lots of “interesting, colourful things”, and her mum who, had we just gone rock pooling on our own would probably have stood watching the rest of us but because it was organised actually joined in, picking up hermit crabs and worm egg sacks and by the end of the session was so involved she happily continued throughout the torrential down pour!
    I’m afraid I don’t know the name of the gentleman who accompanied us but he was very friendly, professional and informative. It was easy to ask questions and share thoughts and he had an obvious enthusiasm for his subject.
    I would recommend this walk/talk to anyone of any age – might try the dinosaur walk next time the family come through!
