General Tour Information

Cavern Visits

Tours of Treak Cliff Cavern are currently self guided, using a phone app (with our very own Vicky Turner as narrator). You can find the app and all information on the booking page. We have staff on hand both in and out of the cave to help with any questions you may have.

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

For a full refund you must cancel at least 7 days before the activity is scheduled to start or no refund may be given. Refunds will not be given for missed tours or exiting the cavern early. 

Clothing and footwear

The underground temperature is a constant 10°C (50°F) all year round 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 can be accommodated. 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 are welcome but they must be kept on a short lead.
