Warmest Place In Britain

Whatever the weather is doing outside, the natural temperature inside the cavern remains above 15oC (59oF) every day&and it's been like this for hundreds of thousands of years.

No wonder the prehistoric caves at Kents Cavern on the English Riviera are the oldest prehistoric home in Britain. They certainly aren’t the coldest. 

Whatever the weather is doing outside, the natural temperature inside the cavern remains above 15oC (59oF) every day ... and it’s been like this for hundreds of thousands of years.

Claire Rogers (pictured) manager at the cavern, says “As modern Britain experiences first hand the effects of extreme cold, these prehistoric caves remain warm and inviting.

Our ancient ancestors took full advantage of this during previous Ice Ages.  In the cave we’ve found charcoal remains of fire, prehistoric shell torches, flint hand axes, bone needles and antler spear points, alongside bones of mammoth, saber-toothed cats and hyenas & everything you’d expect in a Stone Age home.

Right now, we think Britain’s oldest home is probably the warmest outdoor place in Britain!”
