Oooh you don't wanna go there!! But we went on and around his back in Castleton and the entrance to Cave Dale was really impressive and dramatic. I guess we did get a bit lost but not for long as the village is so near! I'm amazed the sheep gets everywhere even on high cliffs!

I've just returned from a trip to 'The Devils A*se' (Peak Cavern) with my 4 year old. On a cold and wet Saturday morning we were the only customers but that didn't detract from an informative and entertaining tour. With 4 year olds and under admitted free it cost less than a tenner! After the tour we walked down into... More

We went with our school as part of a geography trip for our coursework. It was fascinating learning how ropes are made but it would have been more enjoyable if the cavern had not been flooded and we were actually able to properly go into the cavern and look around. Although we did not get to see as much as... More

Best known by the local name The Devils *****, owing to the rude noises that emit from the caves with the rise and fall of water. Worth going to tell your friends where you've been, very instructive too.

Another very enjoyable evening singing carols to the music of Dronfield brass band culminating in sinking several pints of real ale in the nags head.

Ok it was cold, wet and windy as we walked up through the lovely stone village, along the fast flowing stream, through the steep, wooded slopes to the huge mouth of this cave. But with light ropes wound around the fence and a warm glow in front of us, we weren't that worried. And wow, what an evening. On arrival... More

The tour of the caves and rope making demo were really cool. We took a walk through the hills to a cavern boat tour which was really cool too. Shopping and dinner in the town capped off a day that was a highlight of my three week trip to central England. My hinny bought some jewelry there for his mom... More
