The caves were on our ‘to do’ list whilst on a few days break in the Peak District. Unfortunately we didn’t agree the £21.50 paid was worth the tour. The guide however was very knowledgeable and approachable. We won’t be returning in a hurry!

We heard about the Carol Concert when we visited Castleton earlier in the year. We pledged to be at the Carols from that point. It was a terrific experience, bettered by the thin layer of snow on the ground adding to the festive experience! (It...More

There are about 30 steps throughout the cave. The pathway is uneven, so regular buggies are discouraged but all-terrrain buggies are no problem.
