I made the mistake of thinking this cave would be enjoyable. They offered gummy bear refreshments for diabetics! SUGAR FREE, This was their only redeeming feature. However I quickly rethought this statement no less than 2 hours later, as liquid hell poured out of me. I can only describe the pain as next level not for n00bz. Experience needed to... More

A little overpriced for a 50 min guide into a cave. My partner a keen caver thought the guide was very amusing (the largest natural cave entrance may be accurate but to say that the biggest room there was the biggest cave in the world!! made my partner smile for a long time!). However the guide was very interesting and... More

Recently visited the Peak District and after searching for places to visit came across Peak Cavern. After visiting Speedwell Cavern earlier in the day with the joint ticket we purchased (£15.50 for both caverns), we visited Peak Cavern later on in the afternoon. You can easily walk from one cavern to the other (about 15mins), but plenty of car parking... More

We enjoyed our visit to these caves. The tour guides made it very interesting and were very knowledgeable. Easy access with only one short section were you have to bend down. Easy parking in Castleton and only a short walk to the cave entrance. Great on a wet day!

I'm a little late writing this review, I took my 8yr old daughter Lily to visit Peak Cavern on Wednesday 6th of August during the summer holidays. The cave is a naturally formed hugely impressive spectacle with a fascinating history I would recommend anyone to go. In particular ask for Max the tour guide, the tours run hourly, so if... More

I m really interested in caves, but these were a little disappointing. As well as being quite small, there is nt much geological interest in them (as opposed to say Kent's Caverns) therefore the company pad out the tour with a lot of talking- which if you are nt interested in what movie stars have visited, or what shapes you...

The cave itself was a bit shorter than I was expecting but the lady who showed us around made it so interesting............showing us how to make rope, and deftly fielding whacky questions from a little boy in the group who had a very vivid imagination!

My wife and I visited this cavern yesterday and had a great time. My wife is 8 months pregnant. After asking at blue john cavern and speedwell we were told that peak cavern is the only one without millions of steep and slippery steps. The cavern is situated just underneath peveril castle at the end of a picturesque walk through... More
