Witches' Marks at Creswell Crags in Nottinghamshire


Creswell Crags
Open year round | 2022 | Various opening times
Tickets: See below for prices

Explore the historic limestone caves with your family or household group, under the guidance of one of creswell crags expert tour guides.

Whether you choose Life in the Ice Age or Witch Marks in Robin Hood Cave, or Rock Art in Church Hole, you’re sure to learn something new, have a fun adventure, and be awed by how many stories of the past come alive at Creswell Crags.

Explore the largest cave, named after our region’s famous outlaw! Choose Life in the Ice Age to learn all about the prehistoric heritage of Creswell Crags, and what life would have been like for the early humans who took shelter in the caves. Choose Witch Marks to focus on the early modern apotropaic marks in the cave – carved in the depths of the cave to keep away evil spirits. We have more Witch Marks in one cave than anywhere else in the UK.

Tours are for household bubbles of people who do not need to socially distance from each other; there will not be space for guests to always socially distance from each other within the cave.

We require face masks to be worn by all adults and children over 11 years old, unless exempt for medical reasons. This applies in both the caves and the museum, but not in our outdoor areas. Your tour guide will wear a protective visor. All visitors must be willing to wear a helmet (provided, sterilised after each use) when in the caves, and must consent to the caves being secured from the inside while the tour is in progress.
