Visitors taking photos at Treak Cliff Cavern

Booking Information

We are open daily for self-guided audio visits using your own smartphone for your own timed entry visit for up to 10 people.

Walk-in visitors (ie those who have not reserved a slot online) will be accommodated where possible if we are not fully booked.

The last cavern admission is at 4.00pm. We recommend that you arrive by around 3.30pm.
Because the tour finishes at the same time as the Cavern closes for the day we suggest that visitors arrive roughly 15 to 30 minutes before the start of the last tour if they would like to take advantage of the gift shop, museum and visitor centre facilities. 

We’re only a few minutes’ drive from the centre of Castleton itself; roughly a 15 minute walk. We have free parking available.

The self-guided visit is approximately 45 minutes long.

Due to the natural contours of the hillside above and below ground, and many steps, the cavern is not suitable for prams, wheelchairs and their users. Walking disabled can be accommodated.

We are on a steep hillside with 80 steps to reach the Cavern entrance. 

There are 196 steps in the Cavern with no more than 30 in one place.

There are low and narrow points with the lowest being 4 foot 6 (137cm) in the entrance tunnel.

Please download the Treak Cliff Cavern app before you arrive for your visit. You can download it from here:

Devices with the app preloaded are available to borrow for those without their own smart device.
