Kents Cavern is a spectacular natural cave on the coast of south Devon, England with an incredible history that began 400 million years ago. The cave was used by Britain’s first humans including Neanderthals. Remains of mammoth, woolly rhino and cave bears are found here.
The award-winning attraction, with a café and gift shop, is a short walk from local beaches and the beautiful South West Coast path. Kents Cavern is Britain’s most accessible cave, in an urban setting, we specialise in group visits and welcome all ages into the cave.
Kents Cavern is a gateway for UNESCO's English Riviera Global Geopark in Torquay, the birthplace of Agatha Christie, the World’s most published crime writer.
The tour of the cave gives an amazing insight into Ice Age life and an opportunity to see naturally formed chambers, stunning geological formations and to walk through an underground world that was home to Europe’s first humans.
