Where to begin? Firstly, the staff. There seemed to be an off attitude with anyone booking tickets, we waited for 40 minutes which was fine. During that time, we bought a packet of minstrels to pass the time. The kid on the servery sat staring at his phone the entire time. When my partner made it obvious he did indeed... More

A beautiful cave with a very funny and educational tour. Longer tours available on booking, hoping to do that in the future.

Quite an interesting place but not a great deal to see, went on the tour, a little disappointed with this as it didn't last very long and was a bit pricey.

Brilliant my 6 year old loved it. Very informative and educational. Definitely worth the money and speedwell cavern was just as good. Buy the joint tickets.

We purchased a duel ticket for Speedwell and Peak caverns and whilst both are in close proximity they are different. Our guide 'Stephan' made the tour and the Rope making very interesting. He had a good sense of humour and included all in the group. He was passionate about the history of the cavern and all things mining. A great... More

This was a good experience, toured guide through a cave. Lovely tour guide who was patient with the group. Firstly, a visual display of how to make ropes (as rope makers used to live in the cave) and then a tour of the rest of the cave with explanation of its history. 50 minute walk around, some low parts where...

We were trying to think of something different ,as an adventure, entertaining and this place came up. My son enjoyed it as it felt like an adventure especially watching us adults almost crawling to get through the low places. Our tour guide was entertaining and the hour went over well and it was the right amount of time! This place... More

If you are not claustrophobic and do no mind a bit of stooping then Peak Cavern is well worth a visit. Not only do you get to see a cave but you als get to see a bit of rope making. If you visit also visit Peveril Castle then you will have been above and below the same spot on... More
