Geopark Partners Kents Cavern are delighted to announce that Kents Cavern has officially become part of the Tudor Hotels Collection.
After 120 remarkable years, Kents Cavern, the renowned cave system in Torquay, has undergone a significant change in ownership. We are delighted to announce that Kents Cavern has officially become part of the esteemed Tudor Hotels Collection, a group known for its unique and historic sites across the United Kingdom.
During their tenure, five generations of the Powe Family managed Kents Cavern with unwavering dedication, transforming the caves into an award-winning attraction that captivated visitors from around the world. Recognizing the need for a fresh perspective and new opportunities, the family made the heartfelt decision to pass the torch to a new owner.
The Tudor Hotels Collection, already the proud custodian of notable sites such as the Bodmin Jail Museum and Hotel, as well as the Redcliffe Hotel in Paignton, has now welcomed Kents Cavern into their portfolio. Kents Cavern will continue to operate under the management of its existing team, ensuring the continued delivery of the extraordinary experiences that visitors have come to expect.
While the change in ownership marks a new chapter in the history of Kents Cavern, rest assured that the essence and allure of this beloved attraction will remain unchanged. The unique geological wonders and captivating stories that have made Kents Cavern a must-visit destination will endure as visitors continue to explore the depths of these ancient caves.
The new partnership with the Tudor Hotels Collection enables Kents Cavern to offer even more to its valued visitors. Collaborative experiences with sister sites and the opportunity to discover new connections between these extraordinary locations will enhance the overall guest experience.
The Kents Cavern team would like to say a huge thank you to the Powe Family for their exceptional stewardship in shaping Kents Cavern into the celebrated attraction it is today. Simultaneously, the team extends a warm welcome to the Tudor Hotels Collection, embracing the beginning of an exciting new chapter in the history of Kents Cavern.
