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. A visit to Kents Cavern represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Torquay trip itinerary planner to plot your vacation.

  • took the kids here for santa, well organised even though its a busy time. Kids had a great time. Well worth a look if you are in the area. 
  • Been many times and keep going back. Never gets boring. Wonderful place. Lovely souvenir shop and cafe. See father christmas in the caves at christmastime. 
  • The cave is big and lots of stories and history about it. What made it is the guide . It's highly recommend to visit this cave.
