Kents Cavern is an extensive labyrinth of caverns
with spectacular natural formations. The human
archaeology discovered in the cave is the most
important found in Britain, some over 500,000
years old. The most significant artefact is a
38,000 year old human jawbone; Europe’s
oldest human fossil.
Tours around the caves 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, and regular appearances
by Cavog-the-Caveman during school holidays.
Spectacular coastal walks along the South West
Coast Path, beginning and end at the caves.
