Very interesting visit, Olivia was well informed and we enjoyed our visit. Thank you! Bit of a climb up to the entrance but well worth it.

It is a 45 minute walk though the cave system and there is nothing as such wrong with it however it cost me the best part of £35 for a family of 4 as one child was more that 15 years old. The tour guide...More

Very knowledgeable staff. This was a very informative tour with a lot of things to see. There are quite a few different caves to explore but we chose this one as some local people had recommended it.

I’d forgotten just how wonderful this Cavern is, not having been for several years. In the meantime I had become an avid collector of Blue John antiques so was really looking forward to it. Blue John seams seeped from every fissure, quite remarkable and beautifully...More

Yes they are! We took our Frenchie he was a bit nervous and we had to carry him down some of the stairs. But yes, they are definitely allowed in.

visiting caverns... but I'm a bit claustrophobic... (10 Replies)
We will be visiting the Peak District in April. I'm interested in visiting some caverns (preferably Blue John or else Peak Cavern or Treak cliff cavern). I'm a bit claustrophobic though... which cavern would be the best option for me ? Or should I just give them a miss... ?

If you are claustrophobic think I would give them a miss. All you've mentioned are very interesting but if you dislike dark, damp, chilly and restricted space sorry to say not for you. Enjoy your break in the Peak District.

It's some years since I lived in the area but Treak Cluff was always my favourite it seemed less touristy but it may have changed.
