Worth the entry money for about an hours entertainment to learn about this interesting landmark. There's actually not an awful amount to see but what is there is spectacular and brought to life by a good guide (forgot name but knowledgable lad in dockers!).

Had a day out and purchased a family ticket for both peak cavern and speedway cavern. Price seemed expensive at first which was £67 for a family ticket however there were five if us in total . 2 adults and 3 kids. The parking ticket cost £2 which we had refunded when purchasing our joint ticket and this entitled us... More

We went on a wild wet and windy day but had the best time. Stefan our guide was very informative and funny, engaging with the whole group and answering any questions. Can't wait to go back and explore the other caverns.

We spent an enjoyable hour on a cold rainy afternoon taking a tour through the cavern. There was no boat so I'm not sure what the previous reviewer did..... the tour is all on foot. The tour guide was amusing and personable. He started with a demonstration on rope making before taking us through the cavern stopping along the way... More

A different experience of a cave, although it feels more like a tunnel. You ar eon a boat going through the tunnels of an old lead mine.

Caught the last tour of the day with my party of two adults and four kids. Decent value for money. Very informative and entertaining guide. Kids and adults both enjoyed the tour and learned something!! The walk is not hard going except for the lumbago walk section where you have to crouch down for a while. The rope making demo... More

Good cave guide who was an Ed Sheehan lookalike. Very interesting & unlike some caves I've been to doesn't take itself too seriously

I was staying over in Castleton for a couple of nights on the 5 & 6th February 2017. Peak Cavern was our first stop. I went with an open mind and wasn't disappointed. The staff were polite and welcoming at the 'box office'. The tour started off with a rope making demo, which was quite interesting. Then followed by the... More

We have been going to the devils ar*e Carol concert for many years as it's normally brilliant. However, we attended the Christmas Eve concert and it was very disappointing. We had booked Christmas Eve on purpose to get into the Christmas spirit. The band was great, their song selection wasn't brilliant and the guy hosting it was terrible. People even... More

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
