Kents Cavern Prehistoric Caves
91 Ilsham Road, Torquay, TQ1 2JF, South West
Join Rob from astronomy charity ‘Dartmoor Skies’ for an insightful, fun and interactive talk which will explore what previous inhabitants of Kent’s Cavern would and wouldn’t have seen when they gazed skyward. After the talk hot drinks will be provided and if the sky is clear there will be a guided tour of the night sky and a chance to see some wonders of the universe first hand through Dartmoor Skies’ brilliant telescopes. If the weather is bad then a guided cave tour will take place. Warm clothing and sensible footwear recommended.
