Opening Times

March 1st to October 31st: 10.00am – 5.00pm
The last tour is at 4.15.

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.

November 1st to February 28th: 10.00am – 4.00pm

Again, 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.

The Cavern is closed on Christmas Day.

We are open on Boxing Day and New Year’s Day from 12.00 noon til 4pm on both days (last tour is at 3.20pm).

At quiet times and to avoid disappointment if you are visiting on your own please call us on 01433 621 487 to check whether a tour will be running at the time you will be visiting.

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.
