Rock Art Tours

This is your chance to see Britain's only known Rock Art, which was discovered by archaeologists in 2003. The tour will take you to Church Hole Cave to view the world famous engravings, carved in to the walls and ceiling of the cave about 13,000 years ago by Britain's first artists.

Essential Tour Information

For your safety please wear flat shoes, boots or trainers. Hard hats and lights will be provided at the beginning of your tour. Due to steps up to the cave and the nature of the cave interiors we would recommend that groups with under fives and people who have mobility concerns or who use a walking aid seek advice when booking.
Photography is permitted on the tours so bring a camera.
