Kent's Cavern

One of top attractions in Devon, Kent's Cavern is the oldest human dwelling in England and one of the most important Palaeolithic sites in Europe. Although it may seem that the caves are in the wrong county, Kent's Cavern owes its name to the Celtic word "Kent" meaning headland. On your tour, you'll be intrigued by the wonderful hues and colours of the rocks as you tour a world inhabited by early man from the Palaeolithic Period right up till the Roman Invasion of Britain crossing some 700,000 years of uninterrupted occupation.

Many artefacts and remains from Kent's Cavern are now preserved in the Torquay museum. You can buy a joint pass which will give you entry into these attractions at a reduced price.
