My kids (aged 8 and 11) and I had a fantastic afternoon touring the caves here. I was a little hesitant of the price but it was well worth the money. The 80 min tour actually only gets you to the far end of the caves, it's then a 20 min non stop walk back to the entrance so make... More

At first an80 minute tour sounds like a long time. We had a really great and funny tour guide who seemed passionate about the place and was very informative too. There are some narrow sections and a couple of areas were we had to do a bit of bending over and crouching. This all adds to the fun and excitement... More

The 80 minute tour sounds like a long time, but it feels much quicker. The tour guide was great, she made it interesting and fun for the kids, and really knew her stuff. It’s pretty amazing down there, with lots of features pointed out along the way, like the Devils tongue, and witches fingers. There are a few narrow bits... More

Visited White Scar Cave with my children (7 & 9) & they really enjoyed the whole 80 minutes tour. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable & rather witty, which added to the whole experience. The cave itself is magnificent & there is just so much to see with every footstep taken, not to mention the history of it all. My... More

A really enjoyable and interesting visit! Would recommend to people of all ages if in the area. Small tea rooms at the entrance which is handy for warming up if visiting I the winter months !

Visited here on a whim. Never having tried anything like this before we weren't sure what to expect but it was a Fantastic & Unforgettable Experience. It's different & much more exciting than you'd probably expect. The sights & smells down here are wonderful, making you feel child-like ... the sound of hard-hats scraping against the ceiling during the tour... More

Loads of information given on the 80 minute tour, really interesting place (wear warm clothes) and lots of see along the way. Learning the history of the caves on the wel-polished tour was informative and kept everyone hugely interested would definitely recommend! extremely well-priced (£9.50 adult). the gift shop has some lovely unique items for sale (again very reasonably prices)...

Fantastic tour of the caves, with a very enthusiastic guide, who was also extremely knowledgeable. He pointed out all the little nooks and crannies that you wouldn't have even noticed. It was pretty chilly in the caves, but a marvelous place to visit. Would certainly not be for those with bending issues, as quite low down in places. The children... More

We came to White Scar Caves after visiting Ingleborough Caves a few months ago. White Scar Caves is far much better. Really good tour and good knowledge from the tour guide lady. Beware of the Devils tongue and witched fingers! As we have two small children (5+4) we tended to keep at the back as not to slow others down... More
