I made some special friends in Rochdale earlier his year when the humans from #BluePeter came to visit me in Number One Riverside. They also visited the Dippy exhibition @Touchstones . Tune in to @cbbc to watch the show at 5.30 tonight or catch up on iplayer. DippyOnTour photo

@MissCavewoman @Touchstones Hi Becky, The Dippy shop is open Tuesday to Saturday. We hope to see you soon!

The best thing about nature is that it’s all around us. If you’re walking between my home at @RochdaleCouncil & the #DippyOnTour exhibition @Touchstones, why not follow the Dippy trail to discover the history of this fascinating area? Check it out here: DippyOnTour photo

Check out my face covering, in a unique #DippyOnTour design! 😍 *disclaimer: dinosaurs don’t have to wear face coverings, mine’s the result of a nifty camera trick, but humans must wear one when they come to see me and to visit the exhibition @Touchstones DippyOnTour photo

Hello everyone! I’ve come out of isolation and I’m ready to welcome visitors again here at Number One Riverside! It’s been a lonely few months, so I can’t wait to see your faces. I'm here until 12 Dec, so you have plenty of time to pop in. Plan your trip: DippyOnTour photo

If you like dinosaurs like me, you’ll love the Dippy exhibition @Touchstones, but you need to book a free ticket in advance. On certain days, you can meet time-travelling scientists, as part of a narrated guided tour. Book your visit here: DippyOnTour photo
