The caves are well worth a visit and were dressed for Christmas. Clear information and map provided. The video at the end was really interesting and informative. The cafe has delicious food and we spent a cosy afternoon by the fire.

Hi sorry for the delay! I would say not really as you go down a flight of steps to get to the cave and the floor is uneven you have to bend a lot so you don’t bang your head ( you are provided with hard hats) hope that helps. More

No, you can turn up anytime between 10am and 5pm and buy tickets when you arrive. The tour of the cave is self guided so there's no specific time you need to come for. We hope to see you soon!
