Creswell Crags has the only Ice Age rock art in the UK. This is so important they've moved the main road and built a fantastic new Visitor Centre, which now houses Ice Age carvings and skulls found locally but previously kept in the national museums in London. We went expecting to stay about an hour, and ended up staying for 4! There's the exhibition, a cafe, the inevitable shop (very good prices for gemstones and fossils), plus for an extra cost you can go on a tour of one of the caves used by people in the last Ice Age. This tour was fascinating and led by a local archeologist. He kept all the children interested (some were as young as five) and we all got to handle a stone axe made by Neanderthals. We also explored quite a way into the cave (Robin Hoods Cave). The cave containing the rock art was closed due to bats roosting in it, but apparently you can take a tour into it in summer. We plan to do so!
.Theres a large car park, suggested donation for parking £2.
