The longest cave available for viewers. Very educational and interesting trip. I would recommend for family with boys, suitable for teens. Its always cool there, so make sure have suitable clothes.

First off, after driving a couple of hours to the caves we found some members of the staff slightly blunt and borderline rude. Luckily our tour guide was quite friendly, very knowledgeable and efficient in his job. He knew many interesting facts and painted a vivid picture of much of the caves history. Unfortunately, upon our return from the cave... More

Thank you for your visit, and for your review. It is good to know that you enjoyed the cave tour with your guide. For the safety of our visitors we have to explain procedures clearly and directly. A particularly important role for every cave guide is ensuring that while underground all visitors remain with their group. More

Absolutely excellent tour guide and a really great visit attraction for kids (ranged from 6 to 12 yrs). Good value for money. Do not take kids into the little shop though - unbelievably over-priced. Shame, as the rest of the attraction is brilliant.

Due to Health issues I was unable to accompany my small group into the caves.The 80 minutes soon passed having two coffees and a browse through booklets provided in the excellent cafe. The views of the rolling hills from my cafe seat was beautiful. I then looked around the gift shop and the nearby information area , picking up several... More

We came on a wet cold day but wasnt as cold in the caves. Tour guide Stuart was funny and knowledgable, able to answer any questions. There were only 4 of us in our tour but that didnt mean it took less time. Inside the caves you walk over the river and see a waterfall. The stair climb isnt great... More

We visited White Scar Caves on a wet day in March. We are a family of five, two adults and three children under ten. The caves are easy to find, being just outside Ingleton. Car parking at the caves is free. There are toilets and a cafe serving coffee and snacks; the cafe is rather nice as it is designed... More

Thank you for your review, and your visit. For many visitors time seems to pass quickly underground, and quite a few are surprised when they consult their watches back at the surface and find that nearly ninety minutes have elapsed. Cave tours are organised so as not to exceed this duration, for the comfort of young and older visitors. More

The caves tours are well executed and interesting . If you are looking for a proper caving experience, this isn't for you. Most of the time you can stand up straight and there is a decent path beneath your feet . Oh and it's well lit too . A very enjoyable afternoon . I have to say though that the... More

If you're in the area you need to go here, our guide was friendly and knowledgable and gave you enough freedom to explore so that you didn't feel like you were just being led around. It's an amazing place, with some incredible sights!

We really enjoyed our visit down the caves. The guide made it very interesting and intriguing. There was some odd and querky shaped rocks and lots of colour coming from limestone etc. We didnt realise how far underground it was, very cold down there indeed. Luckily iam very small do didnt have a problem in the liw tunnels whereas alot... More
