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
We are now completely booked for September to December 2022.
We can place you on a cancellation list and let you know when a space becomes avaliable.
We will be also launching a new educational offer from September 2022. If you wish to know more or would like to book one of our other educational offers, then please do get in touch with
We are also taking bookings for 2023, 2024 and 2025.
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.
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 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.
