At Kents Cavern, explore caverns with signs of habitation dating back to the Stone Age. Take a guided tour through the labyrinth of chambers. Your guide will tell you stories of how prehistoric humans and animals made their homes here. Dramatic stalactites and stalagmites point from the roofs and floors. Kids can find artifacts, such as a shark's tooth, in the archaeological dig area and paint a woolly mammoth on a cave wall. Make sure you stop into the Ancestors Exhibition to see the oldest human fossil discovered in Britain, a 41,000-year-old jawbone. Finish your visit with a bite in the on-site restaurant.
