We had a brilliant time in the caves. Amazing little waterfalls inside the caves. A must see. Loved all the rock formations that have taken place over the years. We were near the front so we can hear the guide talking us through.

i think a lot of the visit experience was down to our guide - she was so enthusiastic. Also we turned up for the first tour so there was only 3 of us on it but we passed the next one on the way out which had soooo many people on it and too many children for it to be... More

Really loved this. We have been in many caves and this was at least as good as any we have been in. Staff were all very friendly and informative. Great and good value for money.

We've been to 'prettier' caves but this is definitely worth a visit. Everybody we spoke to was friendly. Our guide was knowledgeable and his explanation of how the caves were formed and explored was liberally sprinkled with cheesy jokes and we loved it. Definitely recommend.

We visited the cave with our family and enjoyed the visit. The hard hats are definitely necessary as you can hear the bangs from people hitting their heads on the walls !!!! It is different to other caves we have visited as this one is very natural with no fancy lights or bells and whistles. We had a happy time... More

We went to White Scar Cave during a camping holiday in Settle. I was really just excited about the drive up the Ribble Valley which is spectacular. I was dubious about how much the children would get excited about the cave. As it happens, we all really enjoyed the experience and both me 4 year old son and 7 year... More

We have been in this cave many years ago, but we were back again with an extended family and a lot of us were keen to visit again and some for the first time. The tour was about 80 minutes and we walked a long way underground in that time. We all had a wonderful time in the cave, highly... More

Well worth it. This is quite a special place, full of long, winding tunnels and fantastic geological structures to see. We took four children aged between 6 and 8. The tour lasts for about and hour and a half. the people who work here were welcoming and knowledgeable. My only criticism was how fast we had to walk through this... More
