Attraction details
Owner description: Kents Cavern is by far Britain's most important prehistoric cave used by ancient humans for the last 500,000 years including Neanderthals and early modern humans. The caves are open every day for guide tours, 7 days a week with natural caverns, amazing natural formations, remains of mammoth, woolly rhino, sabre-toothed cats, an Ice Age woodland trail quest, nice shop and cafe with views over the Ilsham Valley. The closest hotel to the attraction is the Gleneagles, inspiration for TV's Fawlty Towers. We are 2km from Torquay Harbour and only 15 mins walk from the South West Coast Path and local beaches, well-known to previous visitors like Agatha Christie, Beatrix Potter, George V, Alfred Wallace and Charles Darwin. Perfect for a rainy or sunny day by the seas, winter or summer.

We hired out the Caves for a private party, after several Glasses of champagne and a few Canapes we made our way down into the Caves. Our Guide Harry was a great sport and made the trip fun and enjoyable, its all we've talked about since being home!

Excellent tour of the caverns with our guide Paul who was very informative. Would definitely recommend this. Family friendly, although if little ones are afraid of the dark then at one point they may get a bit spooked! Added to the fun for us though.. little narrow in places and a couple of low ceilings, but nothing too strenuous, and to be expected in a cavern. Would go again.

Thank Loubrary
