I was really concerned because I'm claustophobic but actually this tour was really interesting and it was spacious considering it's underground.

No idea - there weren't any when we were there, but email the caves direct to be sure. Hope you enjoy the trip. (also the oldest pub in the UK - 12th century - it's nearby - Ye olde Trip to Jerusalem - good one to tick off)
