Kent's Cavern

Cave / Rock Shelter


Visited 4.5.11
This was a cracking place to visit and well worth the hike uphill from Torquay harbour. We arrived just in time for the last tour (4.00pm) and had a thoroughly good time. There were only 4 of us in the group (including little Dafydd) and our tour guide was both knowledgeable and entertaining. It is an easy walk through the caves and it reminded me a lot of Dan Y Ogof caves in Wales (although smaller). The guided tour lasted about 45 minutes.

It cost £9 for adults and £8 for children – a bit pricy to be honest.

The very good guidebook gives lots of information about the prehistoric finds from the caves.
There are some glass cabinets with finds to view including some knapped flint / pottery.
A gift shop and eating areas (inside and out) are also available.
