Discover the remarkable remnants of pre-historic Britain at Cresswell Crags! From Robin Hood Cave, where the infamous outlaw supposedly hid to avoid capture and where Neanderthals, and later Homosapiens, gathered for shelter around 40,000 years ago, to the oldest cave art in the UK! If you’re looking to connect to the ancient past then this is a fantastic activity to add to your Stack!
If you want to learn more about the layers of history carved into these caves then take one of their fascinating tours, including the Life in the Ice Age Tour, the Witch Marks Tour, and the Rock Art Tour. You can book a public or private tour if you’d rather explore with just your own household.
The museum also has a fantastic cafe! With delicious homemade food served all day. You are also welcome to bring a picnic (as long as you don’t consume within the centre or cafe) and the meadow is a lovely place to have one. There are also some great walking trails around here if you fancy exploring above ground.
