“Not much to see at blue john cavern”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 May 2010

I visited Blue John cavern in April and was very dissapointed. There were only four of us on the tour and our guide was a little strange. We had to walk down so many steps but hardly saw anything. He kept saying things like down there we mind blue john and bring it back in ice cream tubs, but you can't go down there. It was almost like we saw nothing as all the places that blue john exist were out of bounds to the public apart from one tiny area which wasn't particularly spectacular. Then we had to climb the many steps to reach the top, it all seemed like a waste of money really and a realy shame when there are other good caves around the area.
