General Tour Info
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.
Due to the natural contours of the hillside above and below ground, the cavern is not suitable for wheelchairs. Walking disabled may be accommodated. Please phone 01433 424144 or email us for further information to see how we can help. Our Risk Assessment also provides more detailed information.
Dogs are welcome but they must be kept on a lead.
