Overview

Creswell Crags is a world famous archaeological site, a limestone gorge with caves and lake, home to Britain's only known Ice Age Cave Art. This art is thought to date to about 13,000 years ago and provide a glimpse into the rich culture and fascinating life of our distant relatives. Over 100 years of archaeological work at the site has unearthed stone tools and remains of animals providing evidence for a fascinating story of life during the last Ice Age.

Creswell Crags is a really beautiful place and you can take in the scenery of the gorge and enjoy the walks just by paying for car parking. We took a picnic and enjoyed the picnic meadow area. We also had coffee and cold drinks in...More

Although entrance is free you will need 3 one pound coins for the car park. The Crags have a good walk around a small lake and you can see the entrances to the various caves. The path is not muddy, even after rain. There are...More

We'd lived not far away for many years before visiting Crags, and have been so glad we found it. The parking is very reasonable, at just £3. After that, there's no charge to go round the grounds, but the museum at cave tours are all...More

Cresswell Crags itself is fascinating - a site where fossil evidence shows a rich history of diverse flora. This is well explained in the museum. The 'ice age' tour of the cave carvings from ca 13,000 years ago should have been spectacular; only the guide...More

Can we visit both caves for £7.50 or is there a slightly higher charge for visiting both? They both look so interesting, we are having difficulty choosing just one!

It depends on the season and the weather conditions - not all caves are accessible, but those that are, are only open when the conditions are right. If more than one is open, the guides will take you in.

Hi, you can walk around the gorge when the centre is closed. Access from the village end near coloured cob riding school. A walk round the lake will take about 20min.
