The person who guide the tour was very entertaining and explain things clearly. Worth to visit if you are visiting Hope Valley. Suitable for all ages. However I think they have damaged to the natural beauty of the cavern by building a ticket office in front of the cave entrance. FYI - No public toilets in this place in case... More

I turned up early as I didn't check the times and was given a great personal tour of the cavern. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable, full of interesting facts. I'm definitely coming back to visit again, and to Speedwell, as well as telling everyone I know to visit too!

We went as a family, two adults & 3 children, to show them the "caves". Although the guide was good, especially showing the rope making, apart from the entrance, where this was good, the rest was not exciting & not what we expected & the children were unimpressed! The guide was " jokey " & did his best, but, we... More

This visit was very interesting and the guides are very knowledgeable. The rope making demonstration was fascinating. The cave is very impressive if a little cold (wrap up warm). It's a must visit when you are in the town.

Visited cavern as a joint venture with speedwell cavern. Turned up but had to wait for next group to start. Was advised that we could either wait or pop back. As it was raining we stayed. No cafe but served lovely hot drinks (after finding the hot chocolate) from the kiosk. Our tourguide was Stefan. We found him to be... More

A great time had if a little slow at times for our younger children but very informative and the cave itself is very impressive. We did this after visiting Speedwell Cavern which offers a discounted ticket if you visit both. On the whole we had a great day visiting both caves and would highly recommend it.

Great tour, very funny informative guide called Teapot. My daughter loved watching the rope making. Would have given 5* but the lad on the ticket desk was quite unfriendly and unhelpful.

This was my second visit this time taking my niece and nephew who had never been before. We all had an amazing experience and I would highly recommend it. One thing to note if your in the area with a dog is that they allow them in as a few was in our group.

This is basically a very large cavern. Upon entering the cavern, you meet up with a tour guide who provides a demonstration of rope making prior to the commencement of the tour. From there on, you visit the "Devil's (Behind)", so called for the sounds and smells that come up from within the earth. Sometimes concerts are performed in the... More
