Creswell Crags is an ancient limestone gorge honeycombed with intriguing caves and smaller fissures. Cool stone tools and remains of animals found in the caves by archaeologists offer evidence covering the last Ice Age over 10,000 years ago! This is also the location of Britain's only known Ice Age rock art!

You can tour the Robin Hood Cave (the biggest and best!) on weekends and during school holidays from February to October and weekends only around that. The Rock Art Tour runs the same hours but March through September. No under 5s are permitted on either of the cave tours for health and safety reasons.

You can find the museum and education centre at the east end of the gorge, where you can enjoy £7m worth of state of the art interactive audio visual displays in The Ice Age Exhibition! An excellent educational resource the whole family will love and learn about!

There's also a wealth of varying length trails and walks radiating outward from here, whether you want to do it for half an hour or a full day!
