Primary & Secondary Trips to the University of Nottingham

Engaging and practical KS2 discovery days delivered by the Creswell Crags Learning Team at the University of Nottingham Museum, Lakeside Arts.

Designed to help your students’ understanding of the changes in Britain from the Stone Age to the Iron Age, a visit to the University of Nottingham Museum is the perfect way to learn about pre-historic Britain. Your students will have an opportunity to learn what we know about prehistory prehistory and how we know about the changes that took place.

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).

Home Education Groups

We are currently reviewing our home education provision to support families who wish to visit. 

Depending on the size of your group, we're able to offer a number of different options to suit your learning. 

For larger community groups you may find the standard school visit programme is the perfect choice. If your group is much smaller we're able to tailor our cave tours to help.
