Kents Cavern, Devon


  • Located in Torquay, Devon, South West England, England
  • Kents Cavern, Cavern House, 89/91 Ilsham Road, Torquay, Devon, TQ1 2JF
  • Telephone: 01803 215136
  • Torquay is an impressive, popular holiday destination in the north section of Tor Bay. On its fringe, above a beautiful valley, is an amazing show cave called Kents Cavern. According to information boards within Kents Cavern, 'the caves are so important that they are classified as the oldest Ancient Monument in Britain'
  • Visitors take a guided tour through the caves. You'll learn about the caves' formation and the animals that once lived here. Perhaps most impressive is the story of human life both in the caves and local area stretching back for hundreds of thousands of years
  • There's parking, a good shop and cafe/restaurant on site
  • If Kents Cavern is of interest, spend half a day at Torquay Museum. There are displays and information boards relating to Kents Cavern and the prehistory of the area. We'd also recommend making the effort to visit RAMM (Royal Albert Memorial Museum & Art Gallery) in Exeter as well
  • Other caves in South West England include Beer Quarry Caves and Wookey Hole
