A very interesting and informative tour that can last up to 2hrs depending on how long you'd like to stay and see. Interesting stalagmites and stalactites form over hundred or thousand years! It's easily reachable by car, but will need some effort if you're taking...More

Can highly recommend this having just finished a tour with the very informative Becks. She was brilliant and made all the rock formations and caverns come to life. The pace of the walk was spot on (we had a very wide age range, but everyone...More

80 minute tour of the caves, interesting guide stopping at various times to talk about how the caves were formed and explored. It is quite cold so make sure you take layers. Great attraction.

Staying nearby at Barbon, we spotted the brown tourist sign and followed as we were not sure what we would find. A very well organised trip, excellent guide (Thomas) very informative. Well worth the fee £20 for two adults, perfect outing on a rainy day....More

I came across this online and we planned it in as something a little different to do in the dales rather than looking at the beautiful scenery. The visitor centre is basic but has a good cafe with a great view. Toilets are very clean...More

A visit to avoid the rain that turned out to be a great experience. Out tour guide was excellent and very knowledgeable and helpful. You do need to be able to climb steps and to double over in some of the low passage ways.

Superb tour... we loved our visit. We arrived armed with questions as to whether the tour was suitable for our 5 month old son.. all answered sensibly by Nick, who was also a brilliant tour guide. If you're thinking of attending and have a babe-in-arms,...More
