Treak Cliff – more than “just a cavern”!

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.

Such a positive response encourages us to improve things even more and we’ve just 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 which makes us an ideal stop off and refreshment point. Walkers are welcome to pop into the Treak Cliff Cavern Visitor Centre, browse the shop and museum, use the facilities and buy refreshments in our café. 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.
