We only by chance popped in on a Monday and it was open because of a school trip which was in progress when we arrived. The staff are great even in the café when my partner didn't finish her coffee they were so worried that it wasn't to her taste. We went on the 2pm tour and we had a... More

A fascinating cave system, well worth a visit. You need sturdy shoes, and you are given a hard hat to wear because of the low ceilings. Unfortunately not suitable for anyone who is infirm in any way. Great for children.

We really enjoyed our visit to the cave, billed as "The Longest Show Cave in Britain". Those visiting need to be reasonable fit, and capable of bending down to avoid the lower sections of roof. The staff were very knowledgeable and polite. Gift shop could have been better stocked, e.g. with books, fridge magnets. I had intended buying a guide... More

Our tour guide was enthusiastic and full of information, both about the geology and the recent history of the cave. There were lots of interesting things to look at and learn. The cave was well worth visiting.

We really enjoyed our visit to white scar cave. The tour guide wad very knowledgeable and was obviously passionate about the history of the cave. There were some really interesting and beautiful things to look at including the devils tongue. A little warning if you are claustrophobic, there are a few bits that you have to bend down for a...

We visited the White Scar Caves in November on the first tour of the day on a Sunday. The tour is very good, you get to walk right inside the cave. There are lots of steps and also two stretches of low ceilings, but this adds to the excitement! The tour guide was very informative and was interesting to listen... More

Took the children and they loved it. They are 8 and 10 so even though they were a little scared it was fun for them. I'm not sure if its suitable for really young children so I'd ask the staff if they could pop there head in first to check it out before paying. Its a fun tour, the inside... More

Went on this cave tour with my partner on a Sunday morning. Tour was informative, and definitely worth the entrance fee. The guide was humorous and very knowledgable. Don't be put off by the exterior of the building. Not recommended for young children (under 4ish) as there didn't seem to be much to keep them entertained - as you'd expect.

We visited yesterday - the cave is a in a beautiful location and would be worth exploring the surrounding area. However the real treat is what lies beneath. Stunning. Felt interactive - touching the cave walls, getting splashed by the water and ducking to avoid the low walls and spiky rocks - really enjoyed and the guide made our visit... More

We came across these caves unexpectedly and decided to have a look. I have visited many caves in the past but found these to be rather different and very interesting. Following the underground river you walk on metal grilles over the water, past underground waterfalls to eventually reach an underground cavern with an abundance of very thin stalactites called 'straws'...

Thank you, You have reminded me that our walkways suspended over the cave river are unusual. Most cave trails are solid paths, though a few (such as Padirac in France) offer boat trips on their subterranean lakes. William More
