A perfect family day out, with a genuine Ice Age experience and easy to follow walking paths.
This is more than a dog day out, as Creswell Crags is home to some really interesting artefacts from between 50,000 to 10,000 years ago. The visitor centre has been modernised with lottery money and there are also tours of the ancient caves, with some extraordinary paintings still intact.
It's an amazing place and, for some inexplicable reason, is not on the main heritage highway. So you can have an uncrowded visit with dawdling time, a picnic and the pooch. All day parking charge.
Hard surfaced paths from visitor centre to the gorge, but no wheelchair access to caves. Battery powered scooter available through Shopmobility scheme.
This is more of an atmospheric stroll than a purposeful hike, and on a fine day it's worth taking your time and enjoying the neolithic timescale. There's a valley, a gorge, a lake and a picnic area with seats; and also a public footpath heading out of the car park away from the visitor centre for an off-lead workout.
