Creswell Crags is an inspiring choice for an educational visit! Tens of thousands of students of all ages have benefited from our education programme which delves into the mysteries of the Stone Age in Britain.  We welcome all types of formal and informal education groups, from primary schools to further education and adult learners.

Please be aware that access to the caves is only permitted when visiting as part of a pre-booked group.  If you intend to come on a self-led visit, we ask that you inform us in advance by emailing  Our school trips are very popular and book out several months in advance, so we advise that you check our booking availability above before contacting about a visit.
