We went as a family into this cave along with my 10 month old son we had in a front carrier. Although it was handly fairly flat (not hundreds of stairs like blue john) it was also really limited. There is a rope making demonstration...More

Shown great example of traditional rope making followed by tour of the caverns and Devil's Ar53 Great guide (Stefan) who added humour throughout. Wish we could have seen deeper into the caverns to see the source of the sound of gushing water!

This is a fascinating tour underground which brings to life the history of the rope makers who once lived here. Our guide was very good at explaining about the caves; how they were formed and also demonstrating how the ropes were made.
