As we moved further in to the cave there were lots of chances of taking photos... More

A very interesting tour with lots of good bits of information that made the tour even more enjoyable. A great view of the mines and how different things used to be.

Loved the whole tour. It was excellent from start to finish. The lady who took us down there knew her stuff and we loved her enthusiasm. Senior discount available, always a bonus!

Wasn't too keen on enclosed spaces but decided to give this a go. The guide (young man called Sam) was excellent and make us all feel relaxed.

Such a beautiful cavern with lots of history. I loved hearing about the history and why the stone is called blue John. Hearing about the banquets that they had in the huge opening, truly fascinating.

The cave is interesting with some nice history, it doesn't have a wow factor like other caverns such as those at cheddar, however it was a nice way to spend an hour.
