Lovely walk to the caves from Clapham. The caves are great, good paths inside. Some low roof parts. Tour guide was funny and informative. Definitely worth a visit. This is one of the longest running show caves in the UK for good reason.

Myself and my husband visited with our little dog. Now this isn’t my idea of fun, and I personally wouldn’t opt for this as I’m claustrophobic but my husband really wanted to go so off we went. I must say the guide was super informative...More

We travelled with two kids, aged 7 and 11. Whilst they complained about the uphill 2km walk to the cave they were fascinated by the Cave and the stories presented by the tour guide. We all thoroughly enjoyed it. Just one tip - it's c....More
