General Tour Info

Unaccompanied Visits

We regret that members of the public cannot visit the caves unattended; they must be accompanied by one of our guides. This is for health and safety reasons.

Clothing and footwear

The underground temperature is 10°C (50°F) so we advise that you wear suitable clothing. The cavern floor is constantly wet due to the natural underground environment; therefore suitable footwear must be worn within the underground area. Please be aware that the most ‘sensible’ footwear can cause an individual to slip.

Accessibility

Due to the natural contours of the hillside above and below ground, the cavern is not suitable for wheelchairs. Walking disabled can be accommodated and extra helpers where necessary are allowed into the cavern at no charge. Please phone 01433 620571 or email us for further information to see how we can help. Our Risk Assessment also provides more detailed information.

Dogs

Dogs are welcome but they must be kept on a lead.
