Great trip round to see where stone is quarried for many churches in uk. Guided tours run regularly as on your own you could get very lost in the maze of tunnels

It was a great attraction as the weather was rubbish and we were obviously inside, it was informative, my children enjoyed the tour and have remembered nearly all that was told, it's quite pricey but worth every penny

I found the caves utterly fantastic, but much of that was due to our brilliant guide, Dave. He was extremely knowledgeable, fun and good at bringing a random group of strangers together. I'll certainly be visiting again! :-)

Hi , many thanks for your enquiry. Unfortunately only assistance dogs are allowed on underground tour. Despite all staff being dog lovers this is not our ruling but is because the workings are a special site for hibernating... More
