Creswell Crags Talk & Exhibition Tour

 

Delve into the deep past and hear the fascinating stories of the people and animals who visited our caves during the last Ice Age. Discover how our caves provided not only shelter but also a canvas for some of Britain’s early artists, and see some of the tools and weapons made by both modern humans and Neanderthals.

In this introduction to Creswell Crags, our Heritage Facilitators will bring our archaeology to life with a presentation and talk about the site, followed by a guided tour of our main exhibition. The whole experience lasts up to an hour, and is all located on the same floor of the Visitor Centre.
