A good thing to do on a wet day. Very interesting. Good tour guide. Party need to be fit for quick pace, steps and low tunnels.

We decided to visit on the way to the Lake District and weren't disappointed. The tour lasted about 1.5 hours and cost £9.50 per adult, which is a little on the expensive side, but in my experience, par for the course in the UK. Having said that, the sights once inside the cavern were amazing. Some of the stalagmites/stalactites were... More

I visited the White Scar Caves with my girlfriend and we loved it. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining. I felt incredibly in awe of some of the sights in this cave system, especially the final cavern, it is absolutely stunning. I was a little worried it might be claustrophobic in the caves but it actually wasn’t too... More

Visiting White Scar Caves was a wonderful experience for our whole family. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Our tour guide was bubbling over with enthusiasm for the cave system and she captured everyone's imaginations from start to finish. The caves are stunning. The tour is 80 minutes long and we saw so many amazing features. Our littlest is... More

Can't fault the staff and the attraction at all. My trip was slightly put off by laddish men banging their helmet on the surrounding formations on purpose and splashing water about. While fun is to be had on vacation - respect and caution needs to be exercised near delicate formations that took thousands of years to create. Signs/guides can to... More

Very interesting caves to visit , take a thick jumper or coat as its a bit chilly under ground. Nothing dangerous about the caves if you listen to your guild, who was very good and very informative. Cafe on site ,large car park, and quite easy to find. Enjoyable trip.

Very interesting long winding walk deep into the caves, well worth a visit, very well planned to enable visitors to get the maximum experience from the tour, which is aided and led by well informed vociferous guides, our guide was a young man and knew his stuff off by heart obviously from the number of times he has repeated it,...

Loved our trip to the cave, I was a bit worried about what it would be like underground and on the metal walk ways and about the steps but it was great, the guide had a great knowledge about the cave and walked at an easy speed for everyone to keep up. We went in walking boots and found the... More
