Nice cave

Our guide was good and explained well the story of the cave and how the noise came from. It's a nice cave and interesting to visit.

Came here for the fireworks special last year (totally forgot to review!) Really great atmosphere, completely relaxed with a good bar serving hot chocolates, beers and wine. Absolutely brilliant duo-act played throughout the evening prior to the display and what a great setting to listen to it in. I can't wait to go again this year!

We had a great time at Peak Cavern - our guide was funny and interesting (although didn't give his name!) and showed us how to make rope (my husband even got a go!), then took us on an interesting tour through the caverns. The caverns are really cool and the history of the place was fascinating.

The tour takes 1 hour and Interesting history of the cave provided by guide who was very knowledgable. Don't expect too much in the way of breath taking chambers or stalactite's etc. There are some steps which can be a little slippery in places and the cave does get low at one stage where you have to bend almost double...

The guide was really informative and good humoured. Learned lots of interesting facts. A laid back, relaxed approach made you feel the staff were interested in you and not just another tourist. And Castleton is a lovely village to look around too. So plenty to do.

We visited here on a cold wet Sunday afternoon. I great way to spend an hour or so. The top making demonstration was something different and interesting. We were kept informed and entertained by our guide, Simon, his commentary both witty and educational! Well worth a visit if you're in the area!

Interesting way to kill an hour. Get to see a couple of rooms in the cave and was pleasantly surprised by the rope making demo at start. Guide was a really nice chap and did a great job.

Worth the entry money for about an hours entertainment to learn about this interesting landmark. There's actually not an awful amount to see but what is there is spectacular and brought to life by a good guide (forgot name but knowledgable lad in dockers!).

Had a day out and purchased a family ticket for both peak cavern and speedway cavern. Price seemed expensive at first which was £67 for a family ticket however there were five if us in total . 2 adults and 3 kids. The parking ticket cost £2 which we had refunded when purchasing our joint ticket and this entitled us... More
