Creswell Crags is a limestone gorge honeycombed with caves and smaller fissures. Stone tools and remains of animals found in the caves provide evidence for a fascinating story of life during the last Ice Age between 50,000 and 10,000 years ago. Further evidence came to light in 2003 with the discovery of Britain's only known Ice Age rock art.
You can choose from an Ice Age cave tour, which includes a general talk or a Rock Art tour which is more specific (or both if you fancy). The Ice Age tours are at 11.00am, 12.00pm, 1.00pm, 2.00pm and 3.00pm and each of these tours can take a maximum of 25 people. The Rock Art tours are at 11.30am, 1.30pm and 3.15pm and each of these tours can accommodate a maximum of 14 people.
There's also an Ice Age Exhibition, lake, coffee shop and gift shop. You can buy tickets at the visitor centre on the day and they take cash and credit/debit cards at the site.
To get to the entrance of the caves is a half mile walk from the visitor centre and there are some steps to get into the caves. Creswell Crags recommend people wear warm, appropriate clothing and flat, sturdy shoes (it may be a bit cold in the caves and there's a bit of an uneven ground surface).

* If people can let me know for certain if they are going by Thursday 11th April and which tour they want to go to (Ice Age or Rock Art), I'll phone up to reserve places on the tours (I thought 1.00pm for the Ice Age tour, or 1.30pm for the Rock Art) . Alternately, people can just turn up without a reservation and this is fine, but there would be no guarantee of getting the tour/time that you want.*
