This is the most unique Christmas Carol Service I have ever attended and it was wonderful. Peak Cavern is a great place to visit in the summer but to come for the Carol Service is a whole other experience. The Cavern is set with seating for some 600 people, decorated and with huge Christmas Trees, a brass band, mulled wine... More

We intended to visit the Castle ruins at this small town but they were closed so decided to visit these caverns. I found it pretty boring and not really that interesting except for the fact people once lived in the cavern in exchange for making rope for the mines in the area and there was a rope making demonstration.

My family and I recently attended a Carol Service in the Cavern. It was a magical, fun evening. 500-600 people attended the service. We would go again

Visited Peak Cavern for the Christmas carol concert, 17th December. We really enjoyed ourselves, with mulled wine and mince pies on arrival we were made to feel most welcome. The M.C. for the evening was very entertaining, with the itinerary and carol list interspersed with informative pieces regarding the cavern itself and Christmas cracker jokes. Will return next year. Highly... More

We ended up at the Peak Cavern almost by accident when my less organised companion failed to check the opening times of Perevil Castle.... so we went just to make the trip to Castleton worthwhile. I'm so pleased we did though, as the tour of the caves completely surpassed my expectations. Stephan our guide was the highlight - enthusiastic and... More

Loved it, tickets were 11.00 pound each and I had been told about it so thought I would give it ago. Me and my friends had a wicked time. A bit crowded I think a bit more space in between seats and less rows would be better. For the £11.00 you got an hours carols with a live brass band... More

Had a lovely visit! The tour guide was great, both informative and fun! The tour didn't go very far into the caves, but there was still plenty to see

We went for the light switch on and ended up in the cavern instead. Highly recommend it to everyone. Tour last about an hour amd is really informative. Wear warm clothes in winter. Really good tour guide. A must see.

Better known as the “Devil’s Ar$e!” – the attraction changed its name for a royal visit. A dirty great big cave that leads to a series of tunnels. The visit is made by the guide – get a good one and it is very enjoyable. You need to be pretty mobile and flexible to be able to walk through the... More
