Everything is well explained and closer to historic discoveries "rhinestones and glitter". We had a super passionate guide with whom we had a very good very rewarding time. Workshops for children are very well thought out. Parking is shady. Discover without waiting!

Brilliant day out especially for kids

A great walk with incredible views and a lot of fun hands on learning. I brought the kids here spur of the moment, but it was worth it. They had a great time throwing spears, painting cave walls, learning about making flint tools and fires and how prehistoric man lived. The staff was very friendly and highly knowledgeable. I highly recommend it.

Excellent place to take the kids on a nice day. Attractions include museum about stone age life in the valley, try your hand at cave painting and spear throwing, a nice cafe/restaurant and caves with a stream running through it.
