Creswell Crags and the Heritage Area is sandwiched between the Peak District National Park on the west and Robin Hood's Sherwood Forest on the east.
Creswell Crags is a limestone gorge honeycombed with caves and fissures. The caves are world famous as the most northerly home of our ancestors who lived during the Ice Age. There is a visitors centre which runs two types of tours, the young travellers tour geared towards younger visitors and their families and the Life in the Ice Age Tour where you can explore what life was like here thousands of years ago. Visitors can take a gentle walk around the lake, pausing to read the information boards located near the caves.
