Great venue for a daytime visit, but very disappointing as a concert visit. What should one of the hottest concert ticket venues is marred by the attitude of the stewards and not being allowed to stand up and dance/move around. Another example of the over application/interpretation of health and safety regs. Such a shame, as has put so many of... More

We visited this for the first time having lived in Cornwall 15 years. I took along my 12 year old Son and 6 year old daughter. There had been a wedding in the caves earlier in the day so the next available cave tour was full and we had to wait an hour. The helpful lady in the ticket booth... More

This is a really lovely place to visit if you are in the area, perhaps after some shopping at Trago Mills because the caves & the gardens are literally a very short drive from Trago. The caves are small but stunning and it is best to go during off season as you get the whole place largely to yourself. just... More

Not an all day event in my opinion. But an interesting place to visit. Something a bit different from the norm. Fair priced. Get the explorer feeling without damaging the pocket too much!

Really good, nothing posh just caves which are very atmospheric and gardens. However every time we visit all you overhear is "where is the cafe?" The owners may not want to bother but they could offer some enterprising soul the opportunity to set up a simple hut with hot drinks, soup, sandwiches and home made cakes.

We held our wedding and reception at Carnglaze Caverns just before Christmas. The venue was breathtaking, with the lake backlit to provide an amazing place to conduct our wedding ceremony. The reception was held upstairs in the main cavern and provided ample space for our guests to enjoy themselves. Caroline (the owner) will provide you with a full history of... More

Something different to do when it rains but will only take you around an hour. Mood lighting makes an ordinary quarry look interesting.

Set in one of the quietest places I have ever been to, this old slate mining cavern is worth a look at. It is unsurprisingly used for shows because of the acoustics and also numerous weddings! The freshwater pools are lovely. There is also a nice woodland walk of about 3/4 of a mile taking you up the hill behind.... More

I visited Carnglaze cavern on new years day, surprised it would be open, but glad it was as I had a great time. The lady in the ticket office was extremely helpful and so welcoming, I learnt a lot from her! The main pool was a treat to look at, would definitely recommend bringing a camera! The woodland walk above... More

This is a great venue for live bands. The acoustics are superb and the owner is a real gent. We thoroughly recommend this venue.
