Kents Cavern Prehistoric Caves

Kents Cavern is an extensive labyrinth of caverns with spectacular natural formations, widely used by prehistoric people.  The human archaeology discovered in cave is the most ancient found in Britain, some over 500,000 years old, making it Britain’s premier prehistoric cave. The most significant artefact is a 41,000 year old human jawbone; Europe’s oldest human fossil.

Tours of the cavern are led by entertaining guides concluding in an underground exhibition chamber. Plenty goes on outside for the family with a Stone Age themed woodland trail, kids archaeological dig, hands-on cave art walls and regular appearances by Cavog-the-Caveman during school holidays.  There is a superb gift shop, café and relaxing gardens. Spectacular coastal walks, along the South West Coast Path, beginning and end at the caves.
