Creswell Crags is an inspiring choice for an educational visit! Tens of thousands of students of all ages have benefited from our education programme which delves into the mysteries of the Stone Age in Britain. We welcome all types of formal and informal education groups, from primary schools to further education and adult learners.
Please be aware that access to the caves is only permitted when visiting as part of a pre-booked group. If you intend to come on a self-led visit, we ask that you inform us in advance by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Our school trips are very popular and book out several months in advance, so we advise that you check our booking availability above before contacting about a visit.
OCTOBER 2021 UPDATE
Due to popular demand, please note that we are now fully booked until January 2022 and spaces are filling up for February 2022 at the very earliest. We advise schools to book further in advance to secure the booking you require, and aren’t able to accommodate requests on a short-term basis. We apologise for any disappointment this may cause.
Please email our Learning Team via email@example.com for further information or to book.

Primary and Secondary Schools
We offer several packages for schools, each with 3 workshops which will immerse you with life during the Ice Age at Creswell Crags.
Your group will participate in an activity inside one of our caves, a hands-on outdoor workshop and an indoor workshop which can touch on prehistoric art, animals of the Ice Age, rocks and their uses or evolution.
Our sessions can be flexible for your needs – if you are a secondary school, please let us know which area of the curriculum you are studying and we will tailor the workshops to suit.
FE & Adult Groups
We offer a range of options for your group or society, with talks and sessions delving deeper into Ice Age archaeology, the origins of art and evolution of our species.
You could visit us at the centre, and combine your talk and artefact handling session with a tour of one of our caves – and perhaps coffee and cake at the beautiful Crags Edge Cafe! We’ll also come to you as a hired speaker at your venue (available within 25 miles of Creswell Crags).
We offer both half day and full day school outreach sessions, covering a range of topics including archaeology, palaeontology and fossils for Key Stages 1-2. These sessions are ideal for schools that cannot make it to our site, or as a companion to your visit.
We can come to visit you if you’re located within 25 miles of our centre, near Worksop. For more information, please see our brochure:
