Visitors taking photos at Treak Cliff Cavern

Covid-19 Tier 3 Information

Unfortunately Derbyshire is listed in the Tier 3 category for Covid-19 restrictions issued by the UK Government which means that the Cavern will remain closed until we are included in Tier 2.

Sadly, this means that as of writing we will not be able to re-open until 1st February 2021 or until further notice.

Our Silver and Stone shop in Castleton is still open – please see here for more info.

Please check back here in the New Year for more information or follow us on Facebook,

Thank you for your patience – have a safe and merry Christmas and we look forward to seeing you in the new year.

 Join the Treak Cliff Cavern Self-Guided Audio Tour

Treak Cliff Cavern is an Underground Wonderland of stalactites and stalagmites, rocks, minerals and fossils, and home to the unique Blue John Stone!

With an app downloaded onto your Smart phone (you’ll be provided with a link when you book online), you follow a marked route through the cavern, with the information delivered to your phone via Bluetooth Beacons as you move along.

Our tours are designed to meet the new Good To Go standard introduced by Visit Britain after the Coronavirus lock-down. Entry times and online booking limit slots to your group only, so you can have peace of mind you can be socially distanced, enabling you to focus on the stunning cave and the great audio tour we have prepared. The walking tour lasts around 1 hour and there will be opportunities for stopping, photography and making the most of the journey.

Children under 5 are FREE and do not need to have tickets. Please let us know if you intend to bring more than 4 children under 5 for any given slot so we can manage capacity. Be aware we are on a steep hillside so there is no wheelchair access to or inside the Cavern, and some areas underground are low and narrow.

Please try to arrive on time, if you are late for your appointed time slot, we will endevour to get you in to the cave on the next available slot.

From August it is a legal requirement that visitors wear a face covering indoors.

From July 25th the Cafe is open for take-away only, and there are currently no picnic tables available.

Please note: Our toilets are open to customers and patrons only!

Early bird admissions are at 9.10am, 9.20am, 9.30am, 9.40am, 9.50am.. These admissions have a 20% discount, if you are late for your slot then we will endevour to get you in to the cavern on the next available slot, although visitors will be expected to pay the full admission price.

Come join us and experience the wonder of the underground wonderland! Book directly in the forms on this page for either our early bird discount or our normal admissions, or view all our tickets on offer here.
