Treak Cliff – more than “just a cavern”!
We are still here and now open for Self Guided Audio Tours. An amazing number of visitors say how much they love Treak Cliff Cavern (see the comments on Trip Advisor). The caves themselves are wonders of nature but comments are often made to us about the relaxed atmosphere and friendliness of staff.
In these difficult times we politely request visits to us are limited to those who have booked the tour of the cave, to enable Staff to manage Social Distancing for everyone. Toilets WILL NOT generally be available
Such a positive response encourages us to improve things even more and we refurbished the Visitor Centre which features improved facilities and a new museum displaying an exclusive collection of exclusive, stunning Blue John.
We’re also on the route of many walks including a popular path that leads to Mam Tor so you can include a visit to us on your way there.
You can even bring your dog.
You can also have a peek at some of what you can see her at Treak Cliff Cavern in our gallery.
NEW - The Blue John Experience
A truly unique, “hands-on” experience available nowhere else in the world!
Work with Treak Cliff Cavern family and staff and get really hands-on with this unique stone. Learn about the geological formation of caves within the Peak District National Park while exploring and prospecting for your own piece of Blue John stone in the mines. Our expert craftspeople will guide you through polishing your selection and you’ll choose additional pieces from the workshop for other exciting projects.
Read more and find out about booking this exclusive opportunity on the Blue John Experience page.
During the Corona virus Pandemic the Visitor Centre will be operating under Social Distancing rules. Please co operate with our Staff, and only come if you have booked a cavern Tour. Toilets will not generally be available.
Treak Cliff Cavern has been looked after by the same family for generations. Our knowledge of the area is second to none and because we are a family we like to make sure that you and yours feel welcome, relaxed and above all have a good time. You can read concise history of the cavern here.
