Schools and Teachers

Kents Cavern is a spectacular natural cave on the coast of South Devon.  The cave is only a short walk from the beach and the beautiful South West Coast Path.  It is easy to access by foot, by coach and public transport and is open for organised school visits all year.

Undoubtedly Kents Cavern is one of the most special caves in the country. The incredible geology and rich archaeological heritage of the cave has been astounding scientists and visitors alike for centuries. Records show the mysteries of the caves have been enticing explorers to venture into their depths since 1571. However, archaeological evidence and research reveals that people and animals have been visiting the caves for hundreds of thousands of years.

We offer a wide range of curriculum based visits for all areas and nationalities.  We can also organise and suggest great combination day trips including:

- Kents Cavern + Geopark Coastal Cruise
- Kents Cavern + Torquay Museum
- Kents Cavern + Seashore Centre

Family Learning

The Stone Age Trail

About 12,500 years ago, the Ice Age ended and as the climate grew warmer, woodlands and forests grew up around the caves. In the woods Cavog the Caveman and his Stone Age tribe found most of their daily needs; food, clothes, medicines and tools.

Now you can Step into the Stone Age and walk in Cavog's footsteps along the Woodland Trail doing some "Stone Age Shopping". Match the scene to the description on your sheet. Have fun!
